Caviar

 

There’s something

fishy about you

carp,  perch,  pike

 

You slither in

the murk

on the surface

friendly enough

 

A damp cell

clammy skin

Even on top

of sky-rise

you still reek

of basement

 

The earth at

the bottom

of ponds

suits you best

 

Spitting sprats

through clench

 

Submerged before

the emerging

fanfare

 

Almighty womb

slipping caviar.
