Fish Tank

by grimbeau


Pride comes ashore a goldfish

surfeit worse than debt

unconditional regard

watch the gangsters

recurring nightmares:

boot crushing face in slowmo

long pig-roasting on red spit

buried up to neck

molasses shampoo

carnivorous ants…

the usual stuff he told me

turned out a bunch of crap

just another emotional

wreck shivering in

Davy Jones’ Locker

Not fishing you out this time

Swallowed your own bait, did you?

Hook line & sinker
