Hotel Deep: Light Verse from Dark Water by Kurt CyrusThe angler flaps her fleshy flap.

A shrimp comes in. The jaws go snap!

The angler doesn’t have a clue

Why shrimp come in. They simply do.

And so she eats them. Wouldn’t you?

  1. Hotel Deep is one of my top 5 picture book poetry collections of all time. I always recommend it when I do teacher inservices. The meters and mood are fabulous! Thanks, Kenn and Kurt, for this lovely start to my day:>)
