Film Set? 

There were many bathers on the beach when a rusty U-boat surfaced, a hatch opened a man came on deck he was the captain and wore a German uniform, a long white beard, sunken eyes yes, he looked weary. The boat inched into the sand her captain jumped ashore. He walked to the cafe to borrow the phone, had to ring the embassy but, the number written down on a piece of paper, was obsolete He sighed, drank a beer said it was first time in sixty years since he had drunk a beer, walked back to his boat. Full aft, the U-boat wriggled lose of the sand bank, found the sea and vanished.

JAN OSKAR HANSEN
Mermaid Fascination

Put a sea-shell to your ear and hear the storm that blew and the call from the mermaid you met when wading along the shores of Peru. The tail thing is a myth because I met her late in the evening in a pink room perfumed to cover for the odour of beery men, who live in dread of dentists. She was glad to see me and I seeing her, although not at this place, yet she took an hour off her busy schedule and we made love without haste.
