man’s desire

fickle physician
magically mending
this wrinkled flesh
with angry sutures
scarring my skin
with knotted omens
enforcing mortality
drenched in brine
from one last plunge
into Manannan’s
tempestuous seas
so fiercely jealous
of the mad desire
this mortal inspires
in the pulsing heart
of Rhiannon fair
clutching the flanks
of her galloping steed
