Red Fish

Golden Giraffes Riding Scarlet Flamingos Through The Desert of Forever

In clear running azure, a red fish
leaves a fishers hook empty.

Dream time lost to an endless weave of crimson scales.

In duckweed spaces the red fish dances,
between emerald roots the red fish dips.

Through ten thousand creeks past stoic herons.
Through ten thousand rivers past drinking tigers.
Ten thousand empty fish traps, ten thousand empty nets.

Up ten thousand rapids under gibbon howls.
Across ten thousand lagoons under staring hawks.
Ten thousand empty fish traps, ten thousand empty nets.

The red fish vaults a single waterfall.
Jade scales unfurl, and unfurl.
Jade scales soar high, and higher.

An arc of rain.
Ocean is broken.

The fisher readies the oars.
Ocean bound.
