Pearl Grey

Blurred by age and heavy fog
She wandered freely into the sea
Hoping to find the mermaid’s lair
Slipping again beneath the surface foam

Descending into darkened depths
She gasped her final salty breath
And crossed through night’s eternal rest
Only to find him at her breast
Wondering what he
He could help her with

And razor clams and jelly stings
Led her on her deathly dive
Beneath the ocean’s battered shores
And there she found him
All alone

Johnny, time to surface.
