THE STARFISH (Monday Poem)

by Douglas Florian

Although it seems
That I'm all arms,
Some other organs
Give me charm.
I have a mouth
With which to feed.
A tiny stomach
Is all I need.
And though it's true
I have no brain,
I'm still a star--
I can't complain.

from in the swim poems and paintings by Douglas Florian, 1997, Harcourt
