Mermaid by J W Waterhouse

in the purse of mermaid

buoying pirate booty uplapping I traipse

slickly sickle-swishing your bounty-flush-glitter-wash I paraphrase & reek

I chloroform incendiary spirogyra haze

–lazelush you with my



unleashing prancing angels across your cum-load

you curl through my creamery cribs, my rim outlanders, my beveling slatterns,

you ditch your course, yank starboard, tack through my tentacular luff gardens, to the far reach(ings)es of further, to the the nether posts of incipience, reeling from my Siren serenade, stunned by the slithering sea serpent slathering my breasts a roseate foam, souped in melliflous arrest, in the swathe of hawk-glide I sleek your gills, in the gnarl of a punjabi aristocracy, you sheath your naysayers, trot your rock-a-billies


fretted-brow               hook & sinkered

palvaered by sea spary ladling gusts of broth-bosom froth, stacking nomenclatures into a firmament of knotteries I consume your edibles while you succumb to the altitudinous thresh, to the tinkering tail-spin silth gyrational grope wrap,

a smile unburdening


nibbling your lobe I throat,

“hold me

while I swallow the sea”
