within the ides
of fear and hope and false eyes
i float with the tide
outward to this sea of mine

too lost to find
that fabled, fearless I
sooner would we die
than look it straight in the light

the mermaids at my ankles
they carve my lungs into an arc
and sit beneath it strumming
my arteries they made a harp
