'Starfish!' said I, 'thing of a moray eel.' Be it black ocean space; Or in the breathing coral seas; Back into my memories squiding; To warn me about the sea turtle; The cetacean coral reef crabbing; Sharks and piranhas kidnapping; I heard a tentacled, seagoing inking; I wrote a story with the octopus pen; I was a harbour porpoise and you a tuna sandwich; The brokered bottlenose whale blossoming; The sphinx moth singeing; Only this and a sturgeon; In there stepped a shovel nose 'whale shark'; In there stepped a 'lake trout.'; Dolphins lookout; To warn me about the bluefin; The foul flatfish forging; All my soul within me gorging; In there stepped a coral sea cucumber; I have dreamed of the spadefish; An echo murmured back the word, 'channel catfish!'; The brook trout smiled; I felt compelled to sniff the squid; Smells like fish; It was squish; Take thy bluegill from out my heart; Embrace the wish; Starfish 6/20/20 WRITTEN WORDS BY James Edward Lee Sr. 2020©
