The Siren

Amid the eerie blue-white glow
she stands erect, poised and ready
to loose her awesome power.

Above the constant ebb and flow;
above our motley desperation,
gathers she strength by the hour.

Our pallet, longing for the taste;
anticipation dances in our veins.
A chocolate covered strawberry.  

Come near!  We hear in our haste.
Tingling frail nerves and follicles
overcome the nonsensical worry.

We acquiesce in the mode common.
Their soothing voiced entrapment --
quiet like the web catches the fly.

And later, of this gift to mammon:
Well, private thoughts should stay
with heartache of the how and why.
