Tales of Brave Ulysses

(Lyon, 2010)

You thought the leaden winter

Would bring you down forever

But you rode upon a steamer

To the violence of the sun

 

And the colors of the sea

Blind your eyes with trembling mermaids

And you touch the distant beaches

With tales of brave Ulysses

How his naked ears were tortured  

by the sirens sweetly singing(Magic-Ban, 2010)

for the sparkling waves are

calling you to kiss white laced lips 

 

And you see a girl’s brown body

Dancing through the turquoise

And her footprints make you follow

Where the sky loves the sea(Joe Scotland)

And when your fingers find her

She drowns you in her body

Carving deep-blue ripples

In the tissue of your mind

 (Koski)

 

Tiny purple fishes  

Run laughing through your fingers

And you want to take her with you

To the hard land of the winter

 

 Her name is Aphrodite

And she rides a crimson shell

And you know you cannot leave her

For you touched the distant sands

With tales of brave Ulysses

How his naked ears were tortured

by the Siren’s sweetly singing

 

 

Tiny purple fishes

Run laughing through your fingers

And you want to take her with you

To the hard land of the winter
