Join Me in the Sargasso Sea

(Anguilla anguilla)

Aristotle mused that

mud birthed our kind,

as if earth’s hands

sculpted our bodies

on the pottery wheel.

Baby, let’s slip under

the radar undetected,

back through currents

and into the salty abyss,

vanishing as mysteriously

as we once appeared.
