‘lost domain’

imagine –
as I once did –
the vast secret
and silent spaces
of the sea

bored victim
of dull days
at a seaside let
I prowl around
a local aquarium

two sharks
eye me
distastefully
a ray tries
to bury itself
in too little sand

a sea-horse
embracing
a solitary weed
undoes me and
I bolt

but
not before reading
the writing on the wall:
THE OCEAN IS NOISY
it says
FISH GRUNT, CLICK,
WHISTLE AND SQUEAK
