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
