Oh Siren



Oh siren

How your call carries over to me

But I know it’s power

And my journey

Takes me far and wide

Chasing the white whale

Of purpose. 

I know you

To kiss each scale

A blessing

To wrap your tail

Around me

Squeezing the pleasure

From me

How I pull your hair

And tussle with you

Rough but gentle

Laughing as we play

The foam flecked

Delight of child-like desire

I know you

All too well

Playful protestations

To hide the flame

That burns in your breast

Light enough

To make the 



But your gasps

Of joy

Scare away 

The birds
