Shark Attack

drinking shark

bites teeth

crunching ice

each sip

watching this room

swirl away

lips stick

stuck with concentrate

arm elbow wrist

to fingers on

glass to mouth

always moving

just to breath

most dangerous

dusk feeding time

shallow water

or waves

doesn't matter.

Sit, sit,

take off your clothes,

have a drink.
