Sympathy for the Siren

by

Rachel Parker

Unflappable,unrapeable soprano
perched and jaunty on the slippery slope.
Who can know that dry,insistent gnaw
at that place where your scales meet your skin
your Venus belly a tight ring of muscle.

On top you are
nothing but a frothy giggle of a girl
while underneath your ten horse power tail
could easily smash holes into the Argonaut

but doesn't.And that's not the point at all:
there's art in arty, craft in crafty, wiles
in every will to win a dashing heart.
At least one half of you can never bear to watch.

You would have made a lovely hostess in another life
and never fancied this as your career
but hey, if the skull and crossbones fit...
besides, there's fuck all else to do round here.
