when I was eleven

I watched my first porno


where one woman

named Angelika was fucked

by thirty men


my eyes were fixed

to the ocean of flesh


like Narcissus 

before a wall of mirrors





somewhere a few metres

beneath the sea 


south of the strait of Hormuz

an orgy is in full swing


the phalluses are searching

like tendrils

of Medusa’s head


the seamen aboard

The Spirit of Aphrodite

are totally unaware





a barnacle’s penis

is 40 times its body length


but they are stuck

-fast to rocks or the bellies

of container vessels
