a jar at the grocery store marked jelly
another marked fish
take them both to the bread isle
and throw them as high as you can
so they smash together at the vector
of marble rye and discount white bread
run as fast as you can, arms outspread,
and dive chest first into the shards of glass.
Rise up, stinging capsules and tentacles,
there is nothing more deadly in all the sea
