The Deep Blue Dirty

seized up.  a mermaid caught in the nets

shaken up & twisted upside down 

seizing up like the long way round

like that poor mermaid

the known veiled, by a dark uncertainty, filled to the brim with no room to breathe 

“I seize your body all for me, bitch” a gurgling voice says from above the shine of the water 

the poor mermaid is scooped higher & higher until shore air jars her senses

hazy vision…throbbing headache…the whole shebang

Heh, look at her squirm!” a wad of inky tobacco splats onto the deck with a sickening thud

Unbeknownst to The Beasts, this poor mermaid

so poor, so fair

her squirming, her primal instincts in a state of shockwaving rage

Let’s reel her in, boys!” Another voice says, a beast with dirty fingernails

reeled in closer…closer…just above the railing of the boat….

A metallic shink, a flick of her hips
the sound of blade contact and the ripping razor samurai strength dips and a brilliant fountain of crimson

Oh no, our catch!” yells one

FUCK THAT! WHERE’D HIS HEAD GO?!” 

the swimmers return to their school of thought, the octopus stretches its tentacles

The beast’s head slowly drifting down a current 

the mermaid laughs and somersaults away

Never underestimate what you sea.
