Anglers in Love


ANGLERFISH LUST (his)
A ppease my greed,
N arcotic scentress,
G lowing pure quintessence.
L et's mix our blood,
E xcite a flood and
R ig my evanescence.
F or I've great need
I nternally, of
S ustenance and succor.
H ear this, my love,
L et's blend, for I'm an
U rgent little sucker.
S hare my organs, I behest these,
T ake, but save my testes.

BIOLUMINESCENT (hers)
B y pheromones
I ‘ll hypnotize you,
O h my darling, bite me.
L et's roam deep zones,
U nbroken sweethearts,
M eld with Aphrodite.
I nfuse my flesh,
N epenthean lover,
E ver-bonded nomads.
S o we may mesh,
C onflating all,
E xcept your pretty gonads.
N ow, in bioluminescence
T rust my tender essence.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The tiny males of some deep-sea anglerfish find females by detecting their pheromones.They bite into the female's skin and the tissues and blood vessels fuse.The male's organs gradually degenerate, except for their testes.Only the females have bioluminescent lures to attract prey.

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
