fish words

closing my eyes 

I am fish in water

bowl 

me over the moon 

take me somewhere 

I am fish 

in water 

bowl 

me over 

to a new moon 

take me somewhere 

nice with you 

I am fish 

in water 

bowl me over to the other side of the moon 

into the darkness I sink 

finless fish I am darkness in the dark waters 

swimming in a bowl 

take me somewhere nice with you 

to a new word a new word that I can learn and give to you 

 would love do 

I am fish in water 

bowl

Serial Killer

the stillness of late afternoons 

slips like a sharp knife  

its edges lined with the lost thoughts of a day

like a suicide of left behinds 

their bones thin on the break 

fall for the only hours left to go 

before the darkness fills the void

they hurry with plans and promises 

of better tomorrows 

reassurances are nodded and noted

if they just make it through the silence 

of the late afternoon break
