Immersed in the black cauldron
I’m soaking in a boiling hell
My sea witch hair
Surrounds me like tangled fishnets
They try to cut it. They can’t see
Since the stars have been swallowed whole by the darkness
They can’t keep me in this pot forever
Your thalidomide won’t sedate for long
The Queen of Scorpios
Will take me in her godly hand and release me back
Into the depths of the great ocean
Where you will never find me
Her voice stings, and sometimes
When I stare into her eyes,
But, for now, I am free.
An eternity of sea awaits me.
