A siren song typically refers to the song of the siren, dangerous creatures in Greek mythology who lured sailors with their music and voices to shipwreck.

Mermaids in Cornwall are said to have done the same.

As far as I know, it's still ongoing.



names appear under photographs
as if to prove that nothing lasts
a stab at immortality
a strange reflected imagery

beauty fades like melancholy
how deep these waters seem to be

like breathing
are speaking

i burned this sinking ship
as november stayed awhile
the stars reflecting back to me
this strange and crooked smile


released February 21, 2023
Recorded off the Coast of Cornwall.

This world offers so many distractions that it is difficult to perceive the magnificence of what is ordinary.

The simpler things get the more beautiful this life becomes.
