Spontaneous Generation

Behold my magic kitchenette!
It’s fructous, salty, fecund, wet:
a mug that grows live eels; a glass
writhing with cichlids, perch, and wrasse;
a chubby-belly china dish
that breeds blue-blubber jellyfish.
This ichthy ichor overflows,
so shocking to the eye and nose
its fragrance overwhelms the sea,
outweirds it in abundancy.
The blobfish boil over, far
beyond the bounds of samovar
and saucer! Stuffed with stunted sculpin,
the building bulges… brims… bursts open!
