The Gambler

Peggy Claire is half cowboy and half Southern Belle. She was born in New Mexico and raised in New Orleans. She has made her final home as far South and West as she could get (and still be in the United States) in San Diego. With the exception of a few years spent as a singer/songwriter, her penchant for writing poetry has been a private matter. Until now.

All gold, tipped with silver
It was the most farfetched
dream I could find
So the pirate in me turned a
blind eye to fear
And the treasure (illusion that it was)
turned to brass
and disappeared
