The Blue

from The Blue by Don Paris Schlotman



Seconds trip, trip, tripping
For this listing ship
Slipping slowly
Down its spine
Fate is sip, sip, sipping
At a fatal clip
tipping headlong
Into the brine

Who can resist the siren’s call?

Her chorus whip, whip, whipping
Like a pistol grip
Chipping sweetly
At my mind
Sweat drip, drip, dripping
From my upper lip
Slipping surely
Out of time

But the blue enraptures me
The blue embraces me
The blue captures me
The blue defaces me

Fish are snip, snip, snipping
At my fingertips
Unzipping me
From my rind
Skin is rip, rip, ripping
Sharks take a nip
Stripping me of
What was mine

Who can resist the siren's call?

But the blue welcomes me
The blue welcomes me

Who can resist?
