MERMAID

 


footsteps to a phonecell

are reminding me sometimes,

are reminding me somehow

to there,

 

when I saw this mermaid

down with her suitcase

just round the corner

winked with her eyelash to me!

 

It was only for a moment that I had impression

like she was bearing whole things for me.

 

she told me her story

why she had been escapeing

why she did leave her water so deep.

 

she couldn't explain,

but I saw her sitting

while she was glancing round 

with tears in her eyes!

 

darkest on that day down,

she was searching of vengeance

because her lover the starfish

had stolen her heart!

 

I understood her

because they kept her as a liar

until she considered

swimming to the surface 

and give up her place!
