Scales Stick to My Skin— A series of haiku

with one comment

by Cassandra Koslen

I smell like low tide
barnacles grow in my bath
a fishmonger’s life

perished halibut
we will fillet your carcass
overgrown flounder

seafood dead or live
I prefer your company
to the customers’

the cold chaps my hands
wet, amuck with fishes guts
I need a new job
