Some bodies are seabodys

and some are not

Brown bodies are seabodys

lean and round,

flecked and freckled

upside down

Seaweed bodies green

flounder in shallows

those bodies who check once

twice three

coast is clearing-quickstrip bodies,

these are seabodys

Bodies that float

bodies that don't

Puppy bodies, baby bodies

somebody's Grandma's body

Calling homebodies

Calling no bodies

Calling sore bodies

Calling your body

lay claim- you clams- to

your seabody
