underwater tour (poem)

Underwater Tour

Once I saw two fish in a spin,

considering, as an option, pirouettes and pas de chats

in exchange for fin flips and schools.

Did they land on their own two fins

or flop onto the seashore?

The madrigal crabs sang two tunes,

haunting the harmonies and clicking polyphony,

with the left and right claws respectively.
