Crustacean Dreams

The Crab Nebula

You fantasize in crustacean webs,
Sand tumbling as tide turns,
Webs washed willy-nilly
Across the expanse of a Universe.

I dream of crab,
Scuttling sideways
To some imagined crustacean heaven,
Popping eyes, clicking pincers,
Grabbing toes,
All in an effort to take, hold, control.

But it never is,
Never was,
Never will be.

Life is too full for that.
