A Fish

A Fish:
 A Bottom Feeder
 Cast On The Floor Of A Wooden Boat
 The Porter Cuts Its Throat
 Skinned Alive
 The Darkness Departs Inside Its Beady Blue Eyes 
 Pollution In Its Gills
 And The Sailor Reels Ahead And Away 
 Unaware Of The Innocent Slain 

 Still Be The Waters 
 As The Algae Floats By 
 Silent To This Act Of Violence 
 The Turbid Waves And Qualms Unkill’d 
 Witnesses Of The Catch Of The Day
