Sea Gypsy

I circle and scan the green seas with eagle-eyes
I dive past the speed of sound and spear my prey
I swim the shallows, exploring glittering coral gardens
I nibble mindlessly at a grouchy octopus...

I am Pisces
I am the fish
I have returned
I am home

Beware the Pisces
Fear the Pisces
The Pisces is dangerous
The Pisces never rests
The Pisces never stops 
until he knows why...

(Like a sea gypsy, I restlessly wander the shore
searching, searching for something I cannot name
something lost that I will never find
something buried deep beneath cold, dark waters)
