I was staring over the side of the boat
Looking for pufferfish or dancing dolphins.
I could sit there for hours,
No food, no movement, just calm contemplation.
Then I saw you in the water,
A beautiful face, glitter ball eyes.
I felt my heart leap in my chest
As your seductive song reached my ears.
Like prime Dusty or perfect Aretha
I had to hear more.
I had to feel this primal power
I swear I saw you beckon me in.
I tossed myself from the Schooner
Diving down, hungry to get close to you.
As I took my last breath, too far under to be saved,
I gazed a final look at a sodden granite statue.
