sirens shriek in the dark
a cry of fearsome joy
in the mud they fall
over the top of the horizon
a man waves at his lover
in the shore they feast
on smoked salmon and fruity wine
while the beast emanates
from the deep emerald waters
oceanic voices resonate with the voices
inside his head
he bows to the sun while surrendering to the sea
beguiling the lord
he tastes the juice of nectar and ambrosia
only to become immune to them
the sirens become silent
and the sea opens a path to the horizon
