Mermaid

From a very great distance
I heard your voice

caught the reflection of your
countenance

the melody that carried you

over turbulent waters

to my remote stern-
faced vessel,

causing my gaze to rise
for a moment

above the present course
of affairs demanding attention

but finding in that moment
the one I sought.

Besides, redirecting my course
overcoming uncertain seas

to draw close alongside:
I was wrecked.
