Treasure Island

RIC S. BASTASA


Half-woman half-fish


I've read the story about
that half-woman half-fish

so sad to know that a man
had been taken deep down

the blue sea and was never
seen again because of a

deception which stirred the
minds of kin and skin

now i must confront you
about what i must say & do

i can't take both, i can
discard the half of that woman

& i can take the fish for
my viand tonight good for

my body and soul, i am
not hungry for tales i am

hungry for salt and sea and
fins and tails and what is

not found in that woman
which i can have at my command.
