A Fish Drifted Across The Seas
“During a gunfight,” says the fishmonger
about a scar as long as this country’s map
flashing whenever he dips his head
or lets it upraise against the gloaming’s glory.
We’ve heard that story; ask for it nonetheless.
How a refugee can involve himself
in a skirmish with a cop who has not shot
any subject or any dream featuring his ex.
The fish he sells doesn’t smell fresh always.
We love to purchase from him nonetheless.
