The Mermaid and Her Son

The mermaid

Lives to feel

The plunge and lift

Of the eternal voice

But

Her arms

Only purpose

Are to hold

Her son against her

Their grasp as

Strong as steel

And his skin

So smooth

Built only to receive

A kiss like hers

Given in such

Ethereal tenderness

As the soft salt water

Rises and falls

In the waves that

Always surround them.
