Siren Song

the only logical explanation

to my query rests somewhere

within evolution

.

how to explain the behaviors

of my youth

.

single celled amoeba

causation

division into

organ systems

due to

lightning striking

mossy rocks

primordial chemistry

.

pangea with a side of tea

.

to become an eel

shark

murky creature swimming

with unforgiving teeth

.

finally to manifest

a mermaid

my beautiful

mother’s daughter

certainly

willing pirates lured

by my siren song

plucking their heart strings

until boredom set in

only to drown them

in the sea

.

it explains

my enduring love

for fishnet stockings
