The Fish/Cat vs. the Head

Ears

That can feel and hear.

Ears

Connected to the brain,

which can think in response

to what is heard.

A fish,

living in a watery world,

writes a diary,

but the ink

waterlogs and bleeds into the water.

.

~

.

The fish,

hooked,

rolled up on a fishing line,

flops on the dry air pier,

splishing out the water caught in its gills

this way and that.

.

The cold sea water

hits the ear

and startles the brain.

.

The fish

struggles for water.

.

.

A cat,

walks in circles,

getting up

and sitting down,

until the perfect place is found.

.

The cat is picked up,

by another cat

it is angry.

.

This other cat

would not like it

if it was the one

being picked up.

Hypocritical cat~

 .

 .

The cat falls in water

gasping for air.

Its life story leaks out

in bubbles of air.

As the fish splishing water-

it’s out of its element.

.

Hooked and flopped

onto the pier,

the cat shivers

and yowls.

.

It bats the fish

another incarnation of itself

until it is back in the water.

.

~

.

The ears and brain

(hear and process the yowl)

are connected to the mouth

which opens

to criticize the cat.

.

The mouth says

that is also

did not appreciate the water

but it didn’t need to yowl

and shiver about it.
