Be my mermaid lover,

Dive with me beneath the sea

Let your words turn into

silly, blobby bubbles

Rising up and away.

Reduced to sounds and

syl-

-la

-bles

we'll finally be the same.

-

No politics to separate

among silver fishes fanning eggs,

soft sands,

and bright green weeds.

The only ruler in this land

is the orb that lights

and warms our existence.

The only law is

the collective will of cells

pulsing,

trying to survive.

-

It is here that you will see

that beneath the surface,

we are free

to reach out

and swim towards warmer waters.
