Ode to the Jellyfish

by Evan J. Peterson

Pulse,
jellyfish.
Suck
your bell,
your all-hood-
no-jacket.

Sparkle
your tendrils
as you upload
morsels
into your
mouth-hole,

which is also,
elegantly,
your ass-hole.

Ah, to eat
and excrete
through one
bold
and wholesome
glory hole—

who can doubt
that God
is good?
