Privateering was a way of mobilizing armed ships and sailors without having to spend public money or commit naval officers. They were of great benefit to a smaller naval power or one facing an enemy dependent on trade: They were, essentially, a Renaissance-era equivalent to the corporate and independent “military contractors” of today. The cost was borne by investors hoping to profit from prize money earned from captured cargo and vessels.

The proceeds would be distributed among the privateer’s investors, officers and crew. It has been argued that privateering was a less destructive and wasteful form of warfare, because the goal was to capture ships rather than to sink them. Privateers were part of naval warfare from the 16th to the 19th century. Some privateers have been particularly influential in the annals of history.


Sometimes, the vessels would be commissioned into regular service as warships.

The crew of a privateer might be treated as prisoners of war by the enemy country if captured. Blue pictures are by locals. Red pictures are by tourists.

Yellow pictures might be by either. Peyote solidities of halls, backyard green tree cemetery dawns, wine drunkenness over the rooftops, storefront boroughs of teahead joyride neon blinking traffic light, sun and moon and tree vibrations in the roaring winter dusks of Brooklyn, ashcan rantings and kind king light of mind.

Pilgrim Cbristmas Rockland’s and Greystone’s foetid halls, bickering with the echoes of the soul, rocking and rolling in the midnight solitude-bench dolmen-realms of love, dream of life a nightmare, bodies turned to stone as heavy as the moon.

What sphinx of cement and aluminium bashed open their skulls and ate up their brains and imagination?

Ashcans and unobtainable dollars! Children screaming under the stairways! Boys sobbing in armies! Old men weeping in the parks! Moloch the heavy judger of men! Moloch the incomprehensible prison! Moloch the crossbone soulless jailhouse and Congress of sorrows! Moloch whose buildings are judgement!

Moloch the vast stone of war! Moloch the stunned governments! Humphdeys whose mind is pure machinery! Moloch whose blood is running money! Moloch whose fingers are ten armies! Moloch whose breast is a cannibal dynamo! Moloch whose ear is a smoking tomb! Moloch whose eyes are a thousand blind windows!

Moloch whose skyscrapers stand in the long streets like endless Jehovas! Moloch whose factories dream and choke in the fog! Moloch whose smokestacks and antennae crown the cities! Moloch whose love is endless oil and stone! Moloch whose soul is electricity and banks! Moloch whose poverty is the specter of genius!

Moloch whose fate is a cloud of sexless hydrogen! Moloch whose name is the Mind! Moloch in whom I sit lonely! Moloch in whom I dream angels! Lacklove and manless in Moloch! Moloch who entered my soul early! Moloch in whom I am a consciousness without a body! Moloch who frightened me out of my natural ecstasy! Moloch whom I abandon! Wake up in Moloch! Light streaming out of the sky! They broke their backs lifting Moloch to Heaven!

Pavements, trees, radios, tons! Ten years’ animal screams and suicides! Real holy laughter in the river! They saw it all! They jumped off the roof! Down to the river!
