Dancing with Crabs





Black eyed Hermit Crab


Dancing with Crabs





Little crabling bastard
what makes you think
you matter

You chase what you can’t have
you get what you don’t want
lose what you never had

Little crabling baby
you know that you’re
half crazy

to want what women have
to love what can't be had
to dance, a hermit crab
in a white
ballet of swans.

Little baby crabling
that part
is not for you.
