Cool (Sharks)

(Baros, Maldives, 10th April 1998)

Black tips break the surface.

Two torpedo twins
Glide, side by side,
Looking cool.

They cruise, irrespective,
Ignoring the black-eye mackerel,
All of a crowd,
Ignoring the sting-ray,
Too big, too intentioned,
Looking cool.

If they were in America
They would be cruising
In unison, among some other racers,
In Cadilacs
Looking cool.

Here, on the reef
Looking tough,
Vicious even,
Ignoring all,
They just glide, side by side,
Two torpedo twins,
Looking cool.
