A pea


Green and with buttery cheeks, a pea
Found its way into the sea
From being food in the aviaries
Being the greenest of the vagaries
Smoothest of the pearls
To being a pointless point
A total stranger and the silliest being
Insoluble, uncomfortable, incorrigible fellow
That won’t decay
That won’t go away
That still has no purpose
In a land, actually no land
In waters never seen before
Grand and furious
Bland and secretive
Tired and spurious
With memories and laughter
Largely denied
Insanely wise stars
Battles of sharks
How does a pea find oysters
How does it regain its name
Of the green pearl
The greenest one
In the sea startlingly green
Lost without losing any sheen
