Pufferfish (Draft 1)

Puffer Fish

Scaleless,
she doesn’t sing in a particular key;
just puffs up her chest and
flings her spiky hair,
adorable but

she’ll eat clams and mussels
and give you the bill, or

maybe challenge you
with fugu in a Japanese restaurant.

But if she doesn’t like you,
she knows where the
amateur chefs are.
