day 15

dear mermaids

I don’t get
why you eat
people

people are full
of horrible
things

cancerous throbbing
tumors
fat cells and hardened
hearts

lungs full of air
thick and fibrous
black fog and smoke

skin like broken
christmas paper
wrapping, all
metal tasting

you should try
chow mein or
pasta or even
sushi

I hear it
tastes just
like the sea
