How do mermaids have sex?

Enclosed spaces
boxy cages

can't ever remember
to pay my bills
on time

but I've
memorized
so many faces
without even trying

When I'm feeling boxed in
I ride my bike
down Prince Arthur

with its

plastic tablecloths

and vagrants
who rattle on alongside

re-performing
that same old skit

And then its back
to the box

with Oprah
who knows

the lady
with the face transplant

Michael Jackson

and

the mermaid girl

All of which
left me pondering
the age old question

:

How do mermaids have sex?

and

Why did I miss garbage day again?
