The Cobb Lyme Regis

The Cobb Lyme Regis
Whelk-licked kelp mats
Flap against the
Anemone studded Cobb
Wafting krill snacks
And ostracod fodder
To the prim prawns
And languid langoustines
Here prowls a starfish
A cinque-limbed hunter
With five eyes
And ten gonads
But no brain
It lusts for mussels
In the tidal prairie
Where a wrasse
Pimps limpets

Unaware of this
Submarine bustle
A lonely figure
Keeps watch
At the end
Of the
Cobb
