Dead in the Water

Dead in the Water

One pallid eye peers through the leaden mist
to single out Poseidon’s future souls.
They wait for billowed sails. No zephyr kissed
damp canvases on masts or mizzen poles.

To single out Poseidon’s future souls
who were seduced by Sirens’ haunting voice;
damp canvases on masts or mizzen poles
are doomed like those. Each one had made the choice

who were seduced. By Sirens’ haunting voice,
those answering find rest; in salty grave
are doomed. Like those, each one had made the choice
to live at sea. Now only God can save

those answering, find rest in salty grave.
They wait for billowed sails no zephyr kissed.
To live at sea? Now only God can save
one. Pallid eye peers through the leaden mist.
