and then the flying walendas II & three sharks haiku

`

twenty four hours
a long line of fish swimming
away from the sea

where are you going
do you have coups in the sea
searching for something

you’re going to save
ali mohammed al nimr
no humans can stop

terror on the land
suddenly they’re twice as fast
flying walendas

twenty at a time
please do not tickle the shin
only your fancy

ten thousand sea birds
nary a one go hungry
fish for everyone

couple sits in surf
middle age middle of fish
walendas jump high

the man just stood up
came to ask if i would like
“see sharks in the wild”

i shake my head no
three very large sharks dining
of course, the minnows

i backed up ten feet
now hundreds of mullet jump
shark the reason why

we’re only five peeps
against these three south beach sharks
they’re full to the gills

actually just moi
four halfway back to hotel
after last haiku

just three sharks and me
back up again to dry land
and do the mouse scream

scarier alone
all three perpendicular
you have shark side view
