They somehow manage
to slip
to the floor
when a woman´s not aware
and travel
to her husband. Still
wrinkled, they take
to the new house and flourish,
not flowers
by any stretch of the imagination
but pelican beaks full with fish.
Cut open the breast of man
and find live mackerel.
It´s worth the effort.
