Tuesdays: Teaser/Whereabouts

I am with Biblical Mary Magdalene and have entered her thoughts. For most part, I am a mermaid and talk of love, betrayal and loss of my legs. It can be anywhere but mostly takes place near the oceans or in the oceans. The voices might seem strange but the sentiments are universal. My movements in the poems are eternal.

~Magdalene & the Mermaids by Elizabeth Kate Switaj (poetry)

"Couldn't make me what you wanted
Couldn't make
................what you wanted
........No matter you forgot

condoms. Not even force
..could make.....what you wanted"

The Bible and mermaids, etc. all in one teaser. What am I to think?

Marie Burton said...

Wow Mary Magdalene is definitely not typically associated with mermaids.. not to my knowledge. Sounds like a FAR OUT book =)
Thanks for stopping by!
