Oyster Slip

1 October 2015

Oyster slip: Could be the mollusc glistening
Or the silk chemise.
Twist a word too far and it shucks itself,
The bivalve letting off steam.
There’s nothing in the world like this:
The plump pillow as it slides
Across your tongue, excites your glands,
And plunges down your throat.
When will our next lick of lexical
Slipperiness be?
