Late Bloomer

When I was young,
I was told sailors thought manatees were mermaids.

Don’t know if it’s true,
but I couldn’t figure out how someone could think that.

I looked at manatee pictures and just didn’t get
the same feeling as sexy women in swim-bras with fishtails.

Didn’t get it.

Recently, I saw this critter I thought was a groundhog.
As I readied to clobber it,
it turned and looked at me.

Its face was human.
Ugly… but human.

Now every time I close my eyes,
I see that face.

It’s neither here nor there…
just saying, I get it now.
