Edible Bivalves

Eight edible bivalves connected by fifteen adductor muscles.
Their electric groans, upsetting to the small bowel,
are generated by the oscillation
and acceleration of sand granules.

In swamp-dwelling dreams they synthesize.
In dreams of bedding,
dreams of tattered tongues,
and swollen fingertips.
In hair torn from sea-scalp
and translucent sea-foam skin.

Edible infaunal bivalves – intercourse on mudflats,
on molten earth,
on treetops of quivering loins,
infested with burrow worms
treating the throat to an episode of dramatic irony,
treating the fingers to a gelatinous symphony.
Just another species of worshiped parloudre.
