Nexus Fish

-- Nexus Fish --
-- Second-hand copy in a Petri dish --
-- Bones unclothed --
-- Divining signs for the side if the road --
-- Skin back peeled --
-- Chalk outline for the truth revealed --
-- Saw-tooth spine --
-- Hook and claw versus sacrificial tine --
-- Aquatic druid --
-- Ancient history laced in eyeball fluid --
-- Tidal turned --
-- The hook ignored is a lesson learned --
-- Legacy sown --
-- Wisdom is the barb that you cannot own --
-- Tooth and gill --
-- Angle the face by force of will --
-- Scale and fin --
-- Knife dissects the mess we’re in --
-- Cat-gut line --
-- Cold water sliced hum a wake-up sign --
-- A liquid moon --
-- Hope like hell I wake up soon –-
-- Constellation wish --
-- Astral roads to the nexus fish --



I went fishing with Salvador Dali. He was using a dotted line. He caught every other fish

Art, in so many ways. Glad you're back and prolific, can't miss the outline of a flayed piscene.
