chain smoking siren stares miserably over a concrete sea

once a day
the asian lady
that lives above me
goes out
onto her balcony
she sings
words i do not understand
in a soft
partially broken tone
like a siren
that smokes heavily
nicotine stained fingers
her scales
losing their luster
singing out
over the(waves)
parking lot
to lure
a lost love home

i am sure
the words
are lovely
probably
i am no one to judge
a walrus
with ink stained tusks
sunning himself
in the absence of light
flailing madly
unable to convey
the immense thoughts
in my little
pea sized brain
so sing on
little siren
let your harmony
find that sailor
heartsick and wobbly
to drown
in your embrace
