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



Almighty womb

slipping caviar.
