Fish Lips - A Magpie Tale

Sea Creature

I just cannot say
how irritating it is
when you steal my hat
and shift your damn shape
into something that comes close to
a fetching woman
but you can't get past
the fish lip shape of your mouth
so I know it's you.

    1. Indeed... and I fed her. From the tidal bore that reaches this far and leaves detritus behind, I found sufficient to her needs!

  6. I did see the fish lips and they annoyed me. Unlike your poem which made me smile.

The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
