With apologies to the Irish lobsters.

japanese radiation leaks into the ocean
twenty thousand times above limit
irradiated lobsters in the irish sea
point to safe sushi with their big red claws
   scientists say (but their hearts aren't in it

imperious women come into the coffeeshop
ordering and picking up drinks  each one
stinks of her contamination by heavy plumes of
sprayed perfume  wall to wall  and the one whose
   attention i seek  has no scent at all
