fish







write poetry like a fish would do
jump, see the sun
dive into the deep obscure sea
twist your lips, do funny faces
cross your eyes if you need to

write poetry like a fish would do
don't get trapped in nets
don't bite the easy worm hanging from the hook
because that's bait
jump and see your home from above

sliding, gliding across the blue obscure sea
dive and breathe with your gills and your soul
write poetry like a fish would do
and swim

(i don't know,
sounds fishy to me)
