    spin tales like sailors
    fantastical sea phantoms

    men linger on extra beats
    sirens sing and sing

    "But do you really, seriously, Major Scobie," Dr. Sykes asked, "believe in hell?"
    "Oh, yes, I do."
    "In flames and torment?"
    "Perhaps not quite that. They tell us it may be a permanent sense of loss."
    "That sort of hell wouldn't worry me," Fellowes said.
    "Perhaps you've never lost anything of importance," Scobie said.

    so ready to take the plunge
    I see myself perched
    I'm in love with The Vinegar Man and Mr. Tanner, but be careful, it could just as easily be you.

    I see myself perched
    like an eagle ready to
    dash into the sky.

    Equilibrium okay
    Though the wings too small

    yet I have a heart to fly
    will surely do

    will surely do for
    a precious few moments of
    unfettered blue bliss

    we fought and I lost

    we fought and I lost
    chanced to tear open old wounds
    now seared with our tears

    old love letters opened to
    the light, requiem

    the light, requiem
    to the moonlight and the stars
    sings low in the east

    sings low in the east
    of purple moon's departure
    behind rain-drenched clouds
