Sirens // 220316


i wonder if sirens ever tired of singing

if the ocean itself let go of the waves

for sometimes the sky is too heavy 

the land too uneven to cross

though i doubt they could ever let go

of the taste of music in their mouths

of the rush of water across the thirsty shore


i wonder if it was the two playing in the water

the splashes of wavebreak from their laughter

or the tones that left their lips under naked moons

and the way they kissed to bring forth the dawn

that convinced the sirens to serenade their night

and the ocean to be their lullaby
