incantation

In coastal towns local people would
Talk about a strange man who laid on war graves counting bullets and on beaches counting
Waves. Isaac claimed to swim, sing with
Mermaids who accepted his ethereal ways. He held their hands as they changed form, waters shaped the sands, contours of heaven altered.
Isaac was mocked for telling 
A story about a final war which
He called Earth's last incantation,
He was ridiculed when he revealed stories about holding hands with 
Mermaids who held those of God.

Barry, that's as close as it will ever get for me.

Checking in from a coastal town, at sea level,
