Undescribed

I was a strange sea creature dredged from the depths

Once; never to be

again

I was

a glass-bottle mantle brandished with innards:

pink heart blushing out

sunsets faster

than maxillipeds could squint blood from blinked black water. I had

eyes, blinded

by eons of evening

with no partner

to look upon the face hitched on the hook sped my disaster

calmly, bladder wrinkled

– split –

explosion, mess on your dissection bed

Note in your lab records: undescribed

species from depths: blue-glowned, beautiful

momentarily, unnecessary

mess left behind:

me.
