Piranha comes out....

Jimerick: Hidden Fruit
At the zoo, Jim created a drama
Down his trousers he hid a banana
When a girl did divulge
She admired his bulge
He replied "It's to feed the piranha"....

Diet
                                     devour lasagna

                                            like voracious piranha

Piranha
Riding down the Amazon,
carrying the pulse of everything,
waging a daily campaign by living
life where he finds it,
a piranha feeds for its happiness,
leaving nothing behind.
Time to dive, dive,
swim for your life....

I am not over you
Every step I take
It’s your footprint I see
Every breath I inhale
Is filled with your scent
Like a symbiotic nutrition
Your shadow creeps behind me
Every nook and cranny
Is filled with memories of you

Spell bound I am left
My hearts arrested
And my thoughts captivated
Awaiting a pounce ready ‘piranha’

Your closeness to my proximity
Makes my heart skip *flutterously* 
A million times faster
Because I still love you

Water of Life
Listen to poem:
What difference to me
Is the source of the pain,
From an ancient salt ocean
Or a pool of spring rain.

The clever deceptions
Of color, grace and form
Veil the singular predations
Of a savage, feeding swarm.

From deadly microbe
To frenzied piranha,
Shocking my tingler to
The Great White Flick O' Rama.

The water of life shall be
The death of me this year.
Coincidentally, it is ice that soothes
My puffy, red jellyfish tears.

The Mouse --In reply to The Cat--
I am a mouse
You are a cat
You think you are…
But you aren’t all that
I am too fast 
For you to kill
The blood of no one
You will spill
Your claws are dull
Just like your head
You’re about as smart
As a slice of bread
You think you’re fast
But you're really not
So I have no worries
I’ll never be caught
A door does slam
We turn to see
A man walk in
With a new fishy
That fish looks tasty
Go give him a try
But he is a piranha
I hope you don’t die

Quick as Piranha
Quick as Piranha


Tucked in a booth in back,
the last customer of the day 
cracks a fortune cookie,

sips Oolong as Mr. Hong
locks up. It’s time for his supper.  
Two tall sons bear

from the kitchen dishes
his wife won’t allow 
on the menu. 

Platters of meat
red, green, brown 
huddle and steam 

in the middle of the table.
When the Hongs
drop in their seats

chopsticks fly 
like beaks. So many bright teeth, 
quick as piranha.

School's Out For Summer
In the jungle her mighty jungle his lion wakes tonight..
Their silver poses with golden noses a run'way girl design ?
Achilles' tendon his dreams are sending an astroid past the sky
Jaguar dances her banshee prances post-bellum sends love's flight
Erectus spectus and all spectrals; time's mandamus mirage ? Ancestral
Quackers these mischief-makers justice takers; karma's, carnelian Amazon....
Ships are sailing gorillas wailing his parrot runs to hide: piranha tides theism's mine....
