Fresh shrimp and a blue crab

 Shrimping

 Grand Isle, LA sunset

A 5" blue crab
came in with the shrimp
walked sideways
 as crabs do
to an empty spot on the far wall
all the while staring at me

Which eye do you look at
they're so far apart

It tucked its legs under
and sat with a huff
as if Velcroed

 Pincers met
covering it's chest
 implying
You want some of this
come and get it

I wasn't there to fight
but I did wonder
how good it would taste
in a salad
