mist and fog come in degrees of grey. i push the remote buttons. ocean greys; rock grey, sky grey, eye grey, dam grey, dove grey. i think of santa's wife. no connection. she's a pole dancer and a spy and a grocer teller. she is extremely busy. she does not have time to kiss santa. he's just a lonely sexy guy with a beautiful beard. and many gifts. sometimes he'll walk down to the ocean to bum a kiss from a mermaid. or an oyster. or a black muscle. or a starfish. that's when he needs love and feels particularly lonely. but the mermaid's kiss is best. her ruby lips are ever so slightly sticky. they linger a lot. he walks a long stretch along the surf and thinks of shelley claus after that kiss. with longing and love. then he calls neptune and they will have a drink of seasprite cider or a hot tot of coralspray rum, one hundred and thirteen percent proof. santa loves the rum. neptune loves his mermaid with stickier lips. that's how one chooses ostensibly, according to the stickiness of her lips. and of course the colour of them. and the colour of her boobies. sticky lips range from zero to thirteen, colours are thirteen hundred and thirteen to choose from. booby colours come in thirteen shades of scale. neptune chose sticky lips three, mistyglitterbluerubyroyale and number one in boobshade. and only because that is what his mermaid chose for herself. he chose her for herself too. and he believes in freedom of mermaid choice. also, he is careful. and very clever. he loves rubyblue more than the water in the ocean that is ruled by the moon and more than all the moon dust there. he loves her more than any earth, any water and all the moons in the water. after all, he gave them to rubyblue, so that they now belong to her. she loves her moons almost as much as her waves. but not nearly as much as she loves neptune with his necklace of tiny watermoons that wink and rule their blood, sending messages between them all the time. of love and hope. and each other. but moon pulls
