he thought it was the Sirens
calling
but it was just tinnitus

thought they would lure him
to a terrible sexual death
black widow spider style

but they would have bored and
stifled him to death with
their physical reluctance

better to wait for Mrs Polyphemus to show
to engage in a libidinous death tango
she so eager to drive her
husband insanely jealous
(scouring for nobodies who
reek of her body odor and ocean spray scent)
and has always had an eye
for where there
just might be dynamite
in small parcels and packages
