My Gaudy Clown


my gaudy clown 
is yellowish
and orange-white 
with small blue spots 
and red to orange 
in shaPe and siZ
his carapace smooth
is round and hemispherical 
his flattened claws 
are raised to danger 
in the most threatening way 
have longitudinal ridges 
seek him now  
peer closely in the sand 
there in the rubble 
of the fringing reefs
and have no fear 
for when you touch him 
                             he will retreat 
                                                                        - and run away
with a rapid sideways movement  . . .
