NaPoWriMo 4 ~ Fish Tales
Sensing dishonesty, the fish journeys past
dangling lures of prodigious preconceptions
preferring fallow flies with speckled feathers.
It imagines buzzing as it swims up
and snaps its supercilious jaws.
It swallows its own omnipotence
(hook, line, and sinker).
Harried agitations settle it into
a pocket between trout and perch
whose docile gasps indicate submission
in this dark and wickered space.
The wordle has words drawn from three different poems. I like where my piece wound up, poor fish. If you wrote a piece, post your links in the comments below. I can't wait to see where they took you.
