Nautilus Vanquished - Poem by Hazel Nut

The periscopic vision
Of your surreptitious Nautilus
Intruded upon my Atlantis
To explore my exploding passions
And conquer it.

Through kaleidoscopic lenses,
I let the curious you
Behold my unravished civilization
My femininity as untrampled snow,
A hidden Proserpine,
Breathing dormant
Amidst the coral reef
Of my veiled sensuousness.

Do you know why?

Only to show you, Captain Nemo
That the ocean bed isn’t necessarily sterile
Just because it’s not flaunted
Before public eye,
Nor meant to be enmeshed craftily,
But conserved with caution
To be cherished only by the navigator
Prudent enough to treasure it.
