Lobster Sonnet

seagull eating a mussel

farmed from the side of the floating dock

seafood is a blessing
meant for eating
for me 
for seagulls
8 lobster carcasses from xmas dinner
awaiting reuse
no waste
i declare
lobster bisque recipe
internet no doubt:
bake carcasses at 400 
10 min
break with a small pot 
large pot 
simmer for an hour
skimming off foam 
then add veggies
bay leaf
no skim for the stench
of lobster 
for weeks
in towels 
in robe
next time 
carcasses in trash
sorry, charlie
the lobster
the memory of the one bisque that was
