|May 2003 / Volume Four / Issue Two|
Bubblegum sea stinger
with your removal via vinegar bottle
deflated on sand
you resemble a discarded condom.
with the bluster of a Spanish galleon
the buoyancy of a Mary Rose.

because you float
and because your colour recalls those vivid arsenic vials
so necessary to sheep stations.
give it up.
What’s my message?
