Aquatic Nocturne by Silvia Plath

deep in liquid turquoise slivers of dilute light **

deep in liquid turquoise slivers of dilute light

quiver in thin streaks of bright tinfoil on mobile jet:

pale flounder waver by tilting silver:

in the shallows agile minnows flicker gilt:

grapeblue mussels dilate lithe and pliant valves:

dull lunar globes of blubous jellyfish glow milkgreen:

eels twirl in wily spirals on elusive tails:

adroir lobsters amble darkly olive on shrewd claws:

down where sound comes blunt and wan like the bronze tone of a sunken gong.
