In Dreams

Coral color, salmon pink
Mermaid at my kitchen sink
Doing dishes as I drink
Underwater roller rink
Seaweed tresses tangle men
Siren songs enrapture them
Skin swept by her shiny fin
She asks if he'll join them
He declines, suggests instead 
She come up with him to bed
Shed her scales and go on land?
Leave her grotto for a man?
Should he swim or take a stand?
Will she sink or walk on sand?
Until then, they're inbetween 
Both suspended in their dreams
