i cut a hole in the past
dip a line in to catch a truth
silver or gold/it will feed me
so long as my hook eye holds
and my arms can embrace

first fish is fact-several witnesses
all saw Rashomon with The Usual Suspects
Comic heroes paper over our failures
Finding evil in others(but not your self!

junk fish come-carp,quarreling,anger,fear
(conflict means they are not good food)
i throw them back with Bukowski and Poe
Await vitalities like Villon /Mallarme

Confused fish suicide on my beaches
Whale Ginsberg(regret)wanting to be

records those few sacrificial fish who smiled-
Rumi,Kabir,Lalla-fish of Light
whose sliced lines gave us all freedom
expanding the hole we all fish within

Now an ocean-many species extinct-
Raw prawns,detritus-we become history.
