lost love, sea,

SAD SEA TALE
There was once an old man of the ocean
For a mermaid he had a devotion
But instead of two pins
She’d a tail and some fins
Which precluded their harmonic motion
But in spite of her disparate corpus
They maintained their romance polymorphous
‘Til a herring one day
Brought a message to say
That she’d gone off to live with a porpoise
[Gift for a lady]

You have the hysterical look of mutes
that roar through narrow straws.
I see in your yellow eyes – a Jules Verne winking moon.
Soon that ribbed pink cave will release
another flock of demented coots
hacked from the craw of an ancient macaw.
Soon the whip of your vocal squawks
will pluck my eyes from their trembling stalks.
Maine ****, part Persian, part whiskery herring,
I love you not when you sing.
Verne goes to the movies, a flickering French theater
of painted malarkey, where mice threaten to Can-Can.
Buck Rodgers shoots rays of hyperbolic sound
from the open nozzle of your mouth.

Nori's Story Fills Will's Bill
Sidney Says, "Touch Your Kidney"
Will Says, "Mine Almost Did Me"
Nori ,"I'll Share! I've One Spare, Rid Me"
Such Daring! Behold Bold Caring,
Hearing This Story, You Can't Help "Staring",
A Whale of a Tale, Not Merely a Herring!
We All Sing Loud "Altruism Laud!",
Our Complacent Proud Is Now Humbly Sawed,
Once Jaded by Man, Here Fore Awed!
By My Word, From Now I Resolve "No Rest!"
Make The Good Better, Then The Better Best,
Now Hear This: May Nori & Will Be Blessed!
