Explorations Into Liminality
“and there came an arm and a hand above the water and met it and caught it, and so shook it thrice and brandished it, and then vanished away the hand with the sword in the water.”

The Last Wave

I cry for the lonely mermaid (whose lovers are bones below)
Salt spray stinging my eyes
Sea stained cheeks


Call of the gull, the wail of the maid (leading the ships to the rocks)
Crashing of the waves
Castle of rock spires


Rocking in my cradle (jetsam tossed upon The Vast)
Her song sails me home
Green glass washed upon the shore
