dance like a crab

Slept on a bed of mermaid tears
dreamt in mother of pearl pink and aquamarine
...and I swam for a million years
in jaded whirlpools, crystal rainbows
grew fins and gills made of stained glass
Neptune's choir rang ocean bells
infinity just turned back the clock.. then laughed

...and I sinned with a sticky-petrified smile
performed miracles with a grimace
in the end the soul filling with sand
piper songs retreated from swollen lips
doesn't a dying heart dance like a crab?
