Sarah Jane got a tattoo
a sea horse just above her ankle
she called him Sammy -

I'm Sammy,
and I'm in the swim.
Around the coral reel
I flicker my dorsal fin.

Sucking up shrimp
in the sea-grass
has doubled my weight.
I'm Sammy
and I feel great!

Sammy and Sarah Jane,
I've bought a sea horse key ring!

Thanks for this one Kenny. Sammy the sea horse is now riding the waves on Sarah Jane's ankle;-)...

I like your shifting of perspective in this poem as you take the reader from the literal to the metaphorical and back again to the concrete. A bit like traipsing through the maze in an M.C. Escher graphic.

A touch of the old Ivor Cutler wry here. Also reminded me of King Missiles epic, 'jumping over a lasagne.'
Sammy the sea horse, an epic tattoo personified - from existence in dough to life on the flesh. Very witty Wilde, very very witty!
