Mermaid

I lost him to their song

Of heroes come and gone

To beer and laughter

To a game played with a stick.

Apart I stood.

Like a tide they pulled him.

Drowning in happy oblivion

He smiled at me.

A sailor and a mermaid

Apart we drifted.

Once sunset sands and holding hands

 Now chains and links.

I sink into the ink.
