Fugu

Tell me more about Fugu I said. Such
A delicious metaphor. How flesh

Near its poisonous spleen was a delicacy if
Properly prepared by an accredited chef

Who’d studied the craft a year and a half while
Two-thirds flunked the exam. My mind

Drifted to methods by which to tempt ex-
Lovers down dark side-streets to dine

In uncertified restaurants where
Failed Fugu cooks took revenge.
