For T.E.O x
>Today as I narrowed and shaded my eyes and hung my melancholy head and thought
Your iridescent ship sailed
Purposefully and Steadfast
Into the choppy waters of these shores.
The mermaids were dancing on deck
It could only be you, my darling!
And you sang:
Holy,holy,holy moment my kin
Do not ever forget.
I almost did.
I almost ceded my soul to thinking
That I was the only one
Inhabiting an island of such immense solitude
And you threw the gangplank clack clack clack
And bid me
Let’s break corks on bottles crotcheted in spider webs many moons!
Drink foam with me
It had been long and I had
For this oracle
The anchor of your voice
I love you.
