A walking starfish talks


You look mesmerized

at my mere walking

what if I talked

wouldn’t you swoon right there?

my twists, my turns

fascinate you

how about my tales

wouldn’t they scandalize you?

If I were to share with you

our many stories, our many gods

our ancestry and our many curses

you would be surprised, nay, shocked, I know.

(perhaps you find yourself there!)

On the dumb racks

dead and some times dried

do I still look so ravishing

I just wonder?

Forget it brother

sometimes slow down a bit

spend some time with us lesser mortals

we make your world too

for good or bad we are family

maybe then you be kinder!
