Susurrus

Susurrus (SussieRus)

Let the mindpebbles mollyslip

on the smooth sand

 

do not probe

do not stab at the shark pups through the bars

 

do not step harshly on the

coral fingers of the skull cave

 

softly softly catch the sea monkey

 

don’t go diving in that submarine

its 533 gauge torpedo tubes

have little tolerance

for the clownfish

of inquiry

 

slide smooth along the seabed’s undulations

embrace the susurrus

of silence
