The Black Oysters

The rustic women dive,
And collect in baskets
The black oysters that feed
On the breast of muddy sands.

When boil, the oysters 
Open their doors, closed tightly,
To sooth the hungry stomachs
With the delicious flesh.

When the oyster roast
Is served on table with a spoon,
The rich are taken
On to the crest of taste.

Vitamin ‘E’ oozing
Black oysters
Stimulate the pale withered nights
Into red hot throbbing.

Small fishes are seen
Whispering the black oysters,
The dreams and the pains,
Moist with the river water.

Silent in the baskets,
The grand black oysters
Open the wet tales,
Unknown to the humans.

    magical, mysterious, sexual..[The hungry stomachs boors owned...what do you mean what is boor? or boored?] Bring this into the present tense and it will be even stronger. Light & Love

    Hey Fabiyus! An interesting write, indeed. Much seems to be happening here, and I can only grasp some of its intensity. Though they lay 'silent in the basket', I'm sure they'd have many tales the tell. I did add more to this comment, but it has nothing to do with neither here nor there. I do wonder though, if black pearls would come from black oysters? Best regards to you! Mikki
