As the sea-lion hauls himself up

Onto this platform where he’ll cavort

For Two Shows Daily clever dick images

Swim through my mind: he’s a slick grey    

Piping bag with eyes like sultanas,

Bewhiskered as a Victorian toff

Who sways like some foot loose gantry-

But while I’m posing with my book

He closes the distance between us

Man-whispering bares teeth that could shave 

Sinew from bone slams his face into mine,

Hot salty breath scouring my throat

He is the symphony.

I’m just a note.
