Lemonfishbutter

        squeeze your juice into a glass
        membranes aching to and fro
        get a grip against that pull
        that tidal surge that we all know

        climbing ladders and chasing bait
        gills that ache with every pulse
        foaming waves slip in and out
        a thunderstorm about to burst

        two dorsal fins that crest the surf
        a dark eye like your gaping mouth
        scaling tailspins to new depths
        a flooded dam that leaves no doubt

        squeeze your juice into a glass
        membranes aching to and fro
        get a grip against that pull
        that tidal surge that we all know

        (lemon fish butter - satisfy your soul)
