Reef Goblin

Photo by Scott Webb on Pexels

Covered in coral,

Bumps, warts,

Teeth full of bones…

The opposite

Of a Desert Goblin,

Or one that dwells

In a cold canal…

This one loves the company

Of fish and fangs…

Not a lost snorkeler.

A necklace threaded

With shells

And seaweed,

Clothes design specially

From torn nets,

Ropes floating and strapped

Around the Reef Goblin’s ankles.

Fashionable, not practical,

But who needs to be practical

When food in a wetsuit

Is easy pickings?…
