“Carnival Edge: New and Selected Poems”,
and “Tigers on the Silk Road”,
“The White Boat“
Lobster and telephone have found each other:
the telephone can’t eat the lobster
the lobster can’t eat the telephone.
The phone’s gone kitsch, wearing
an electric-orange hard-hat,
keeping the day on hold.
Sooner or later it had to happen
that some laser-eyed lobster
would shake off one sea and find another –
a stunned, air-shell ocean of voices
listening to sterlob sterlob,
as if for the first time.
