Given a 1 because Medusa only knows how many times I’ll use that overwrought title.
Today it is only to say what a damn shame I wasn’t born mythical Siren. Given my love of a 7×4 kiddie pool, oh the sailors I could drown given an entire ocean.
I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.
I do not think that they will sing to me.
I have seen them riding seaward on the waves
Combing the white hair of the waves blown back
When the wind blows the water white and black.
We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown.
