Where - Are They Now?

Where - Are They Now?

The little mermaid
has a bath

to soothe her
nerves.

turns on
the hot tap

with a dainty toe.

wonders where it
all went

wrong all
so long
ago.

The Prince
(a man)

she never really
got to know

no
love

no
tenderness.

And he snores.

Nothing but
a uniform

all gold braid
All that blusters isn’t...

the many medals
he awarded to himself.

Her bitter laughter

trapped by the tiles

in this perfect
all white too bright
bathroom

wherein she sings

unhappy
ever after.
