Mermaid

I dreamed blue

mussels circled

round your silver

hair in spiral

columns as you

dove for stone crabs

while I stood by

and watched you

glide through the sea

effortlessly

as a gull shits.

    This is beautiful…The last line shocked me, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing…i love the vision of blue mussels spiraling around…lovely, Mr. Hile…
