crab

I never knew I would become so
intimate with the symbolic crab
in so real a sense
yet it is so fitting

crab walks sideways
armed discus
skyward symbol
horoscope made flesh
and dwelt among us

perfection
continues in
my flesh
in the tides of
my circular organ
my bladder

there resides the seed
that can spring forth
incarnated
deadly
disaster
unmaking all
