Age of aquarium haiku


weedy sea dragon
swims close to see handsome face
propellers propel

another world sees
the magical charming man
understanding you

her eyes meet your eyes
across european seas
tails slide around limbs

parrot fish sailing
her blue lipstick and blue eyes
stare into your soul

shark over your head
perfect teeth devour nothing
only his dentist

knows for sure his bite
scars of red underneath fish
animal rights groups

know what they speak of
they aren’t whistling dixie
can pat the jellies

not the japanese
mushroom illuminated
lanterns of light swim

every country asks
will you please take our picture
what do we look like

frank sinatra sings
christmas songs from the fifties
jellies beat in time
