smile, nod with a wink,

         hide what to see, what to think,

                  squids squirt jet black ink !...

Sick sounds I can’t stand
Smell of warm squid far from land….
Vomit in my hand

Shyful Squid
did you hear about the shyful squid
who always tried hard to stay well hid
it seems he was always found out
for his tentacles flailed about
never managed to stay off the grid...

While in Segovia,
Where life is rosier,
I sipped ambrosia
With sweet Zenobia.

Back home in Madrid,
My old mate, El Cid,
Won himself fifty quid
When he caught a prize squid.

Firefly Squid -Haiku-
Light up the ocean
from depths far away from light
fishermen catch them.

Copyright © Cynthia Jones

From the depths, the ocean lights up like a Christmas tree. The Japanese fishermen catch them in their nets....

There’s no one as funny as Atticus
To go fishing he wrote out a syllabus
He outlined his day
Made a magnificent play
Yet caught with his squid more octopus

Prawn and Winkle Custard
A delicacy and delight
Much nicer than Pilchard Jelly
Sounds disgusting and contrite
I’m partial to Bat wing stew
Though not to the taste of all
But as for Squid legs soup
Yuk, that makes my Stomach crawl

A Continuation of ‘On the Vanity of Earthly Greatness'
The Bengal is dead, a corpse in the ground,
The do-do bird is without sound.
The tribes of Indians, won’t see another day,
The ash from the volcano, has long been blown away.
We have seen the death, of the giant squid,
And many evils stole, the paintings of Madrid.
Why is it that we must destroy?
Maybe someday, morals we will employ....

When it comes
I can never write a poem
when I am told to write a poem.
It comes randomly	like
Alley cats in my window whining for tuna
Waves that wash ashore cigarette butts and dead squid
Excited virgin boys who promise their performance will be better next time
						Jot that down. 
It leaves abruptly	like 
those midday summer rains and the only thing that is left is 
a rainbow.

She was warm to the touch
Cold to the bone
A sheepskin clutch
With a heart of stone
Her gentle webbed hands pulling, she drowns him
And he’s seeking solace as she comes up for air
A Benedict Arnold over easy, she confounds him
He comes with a start and she with a stare
Deciphering what truth, if any human remains
She’ll speak dolphin, he’ll just wail
White squid ink on her nightie stains
Her love scribbled on a platypus bill of sale...
