Trees are chopping down the forest,
and fish are killing the seas
Do you have
a strong mind?
I think I do,
I said, for
when I cast,
I cast far, but I
reel it back in.
once the hook sets,
and the fish goes
and they all go live
in the deep blue sea.
And for Phil Phillips
When a rockslide traps the fish –
little fish in a little pool –
the fish swim ’round and ’round
and ’round and ’round and ’round
How far do you let it go
before you reel it back in?
And how big is exactly
the fish you’re trying to catch?
And how smart and strong are you?
And can you swim?
But hints of fish did keep me there.
I felt their passing left and right,
‘lusive loves in starfish night.
