Mermaiden
 I lie on my mattress of green
And pillow of quartz,
As the water rolls over me

Fingers, smoother than love,
warmer than July's breezy petals
caress my slick body

Slowly my seaweed comb detangles the centuries
corroded and rusty, with a wet, eternal peace

I feel the river inside my smile
And the river is never still
