Sea Serpent

September 13, 2009

Ye Olde Sea Serpent, monster of the deep

Slick like purest crude oil and dark like that, too

Explore the brackish pit of endless water

’til the shafts of natural light jerry-rigged through the coils

and strands of peat moss and aquatic grasses

seduce you to the surface for long enough to frighten some naive fisherman

Or your dark gliding vision will induce a vicarious mystery-revealed thrill in some bored tourist

Yes, you will open the joy of discovery,

and the shudder of tasty fear,

thanks to what you are

and what the murky depths whisper and promise you to be
