Fishing For Love

deep sea—bottomless
was fishing for love, no bites
a mermaid appeared!

this mermaid—her eyes
into the abyss I stared
pure green, crystalline

communication
she smiled, laughed like a human
I waved—she splashed me!

and then she vanished
mermaid—merely a mirage?
so I laughed, I cried
