The Giving and the Getting

Person in black T-shirt with slicked
Black hair a credit card and a car
That works pull up here and take out

Sexual takeout I want the rice
For my little shrimp bits they
Look like pink mermaids like me

Begging to get out of the sea and
Mingle until our hands reek of
Plankton and scampi and fannies yes

bring me to a swell that salt that sea
water tucked into your bedside table
Drawer like an open secret that you

Play well with yourself know how to be
giving with your hand or something
plastic and the getting with your body
