……………………………………………………………………………..dead fish

dead fish

 

a young girl drops tears on its cold still eyes

a teenage boy pokes it with a stick

an environmentalist blames the sky

a Christian sees a wounded symbol

the junkie counts his scales and hopes for a sum

the woman in the business suit pretends not to see

or smell

the Taoist says in his mind,”here is a dead fish”
