Sylvia Plath

Aquatic Nocturne

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.
