Poor Fish

are you doing what you are doing
(reading these words) because it is
what you do (when how often) or
for some other reason (what is it)

poetry can tell you what the poet
thinks or wants you to know who
he or she is how sees the world
persuade you of unfamiliar truths

you will be better when the drug
wears off what was learned gone
fishing you think poor fish what
matters is to stay alive uneaten
