Little Sister

November 25, 2014



Medusa's little sister never quite nailed the look.

Sailors struck by glimpse of Gorgon's head

turned to stone.

Little sister, too flighty for concentration

missed the part about penetration

with glare and word 

and so poor sailors cast her way

were by ineptitude

consigned to tortured timber,

the timbre of their call in extremity

a hollow cry

carried on the tide as waves washed their

storm tossed torso's

driftwood lungs expelling their frustration

as she moved on

distracted by a butterfly
