music for the muse

barren beach below snow covered sand
sun over the yardarm rue the stew Dinty Moore
fish the fish wriggle worm lure the lurid splash
diver bubble bends trouble murky brine
old boats sail away never die
fore aft Chris Craft hull and kisses
cast the mast crow’s nest rest witches
give it up for lent lofty wishes
bent spent cent sense solitude
watery green Goddess of Neptune
hurl the world submerge submit
an aging bloom
beckon second seldom clouds
rain a strain of Strauss
music for the muse
coming out of her blouse
glassy eyes descend
hide hidden harmonic heretic
reduce speed delicate for the benefit
of merriment
let there be
incredulous contentment
white street of Gloucester by the sea.
