I see
Never blink
I swim through areas
But I don’t swim with other fish
I stay to myself alone
Till the hook Sinks in
And my gills let me breathe
As they scale off my skin

The world of a fish through the
Eyes of a poet

Oh theatrical world
Oceanic dream
Sifting through the blue
Water swimming the stream
Oh beautiful existence use
A word like worms on a hook
And bring me to the edge of
The water
I’ll bore em with my book

I am a poet
Fuck you I’m a fish

I am a fish
Fuck you I’m a poet

Two schools of thought
Both swim alone.
