I'd love to live a sea life,
there's just so much to do.
It would never ever be boring,
in the deep deep ocean blue.
I could juggle with clownfish,
sunbathe with the rays,
take off with the pilot whales,
and go blading with skates
Blow balloons with the pufferfish,
play pool with a shark
go hunting with sea lions,
teach a dogfish to bark
I could strum with guitarfish,
play piano with tunas,
make jazz with a bass,
then go solo with groupers
And we'd all have sea-cucumber sandwiches for lunch,
and jellyfish for desert.

I walk the ocean sands
and wade among the waves.
I see an angel in motion
dancing on the foam.
This angel swirls and dips
the tutu fans with lunge;
Ballerinas in mid air
Or wings of glossy jell.
Fragile form yet vile
Like love you've had awhile.
Beautiful, yet stings
Jellyfish at the beach.

farewell, home, house, jobs, life, poetry, sad,
I am a drifting Jellyfish
my hopes are none to all
I love a place and a time
the current rips it from me
I have no home, I have no constant
variables fill my mind
I cannot show what I love
but really it's a given
All I want is a stable home
no movement in my waters
The selfish Sea only sees it's self
one day I will be gone
Beware you selfish Ocean
my defense is my sting

a painter wants to paint you
the chef will cook for you
a writer wants to write for you
a doctor wants to cure you
a performer will entertain you
the clergy wants to save you
a counselor will explain you
a politician wants to sway you
the traitor will ruin you
a pimp, to prostitute you
a sniper wants to shoot you
a bomber will explode you
adolescence will renounce you
a bouncer wants to bounce you
a lover wants to love you
a god, to be above you
scorpions will strike you
the viper wants to bite you
a jellyfish will sting you
a songbird will sing to you
that's what they know to do

corruption, deep, feelings, fish, heartbreak, holocaust, love hurts,
People are like lobsters crawling in dirt
with brain cells less advanced than a jellyfish
always digging in the sand without salt they would disappear
They could not breathe the fresh air if it were poisoned by chemicals
fresh water has a better taste unpolluted
Chocolate starfish slimy sea slugs
Silly cones, fake plastic barbies
Toxic people in toxic world
None the wiser
Modern day zombies
Yes men plugged into the machine
Greedy 1 % sharks living off the tuna only scraps to the bottom feeding mouth breathers poor bastards
Fed only bull they kindly ask
"Please sir may I have some more?"

devotion, love, , sweet love,
Our love had no syllables
It had no meaning nor symbols
It was a pure air bubble
Clear as a crystal ball
It diluted the oceans’ blue
It had no definition for it was true
It dissolved tears into a love potion
It moved in slow motion with utter devotion
It had no words to speak our thoughts
Its essence could not be taught
It was magic without the tricks
A beautiful dream like the matrix
Jealous doubted like jellyfish floated away
With the grace of a sting ray
Our breath was an osmosis notion
Our sweet love, an aqueous solution

children, funny, happiness, love, mystery,
I like jellyfish a fish does not swim in my belly.
I like them with lemon pepper and jelly.
But when I am poor, I eat them by score,
I catch them by fishing default.
I dont count them at all.
I am a merman, swimming for my mermaid,
eating my jellyfish, I relish my fish,
with lemon and pepper and jelly.
And because I am poor I eat them by score,
I catch them by hand, not while they swam.
Relishing and swimming rhymes with
My Mermaid she just loves Shrimpe,
but She does not eat them up, or
place them in dip.
She feeds them to her strang pelican.

Leatherback, murray river, matama
Hawksbill, common musk and spiny soft shell.
Loggerhead, Atlantic green, alligator snapping
Turtles are we, in every country we dwell.
The largest sea turtle reaches eight hundred pounds.
A leatherback whose love for jellyfish abounds.
Alligator snapping is one fourth of leatherback’s weight
Uses pink fleshy flap of lower jaw for bait.
The difference in turtles fascinates me.
I can picture the loggerheads running to the sea.
No matter what country you decide to make your home
There is a turtle close by, even if it is in this poem.

beautiful, blessing, emotions, happiness, love, universe,
The concept of you and I
is a beautifully woven paradox.
Both a blessing and a curse.
Full of conflicting ideas and loud words
that always transition back to
soft whispers and gentle fingertips.
Nonsensical in its entirety,
but worth the effort nonetheless.
Strong auras of admiration for each other
that float above the clouds like jellyfish,
yet the feelings of frustration always linger
Forever friends and enemies,
as long as the sun shines bright,
until our bodies can no longer
press together any closer,
and until our hands
disconnect from each other.
