"Piranhas"
Piranhas thrashing tales to the feeding frenzy de rigueur, someone’s torn they can smell the blood pointing fingers in a mirror writing with burley on their star studded glowing wall craggy oysters salty, grey and green furry mouthed blunt, stunted minds lacking wisdom scattering imperfect pearls their sharp siren songs piercing like an old scratched and broken record flip side B, all the same a coin with two heads and a common tail they are swollen and swallowing their own scales with the weight of what they think is right they all take a self-satisfying accusatory bite; the one’s with open minds non-accusatory are Lotus-sitting floating transcendental meditating, on the left observing, out of sight like glowing pin pricks satellites viewing with their third eye the forked tongues of Piranhas yapping hyperbole, barking now like wild dogs tearing a piece of meat from the stomped on eviscerated bloody prey, they pray, making sure their holy mary mother of god songs are heard and seen first, passing morsels like it’s the last supper they all take a bite reptilian flight or fight; a cat walks amongst the fattened up clucking chirping pigeons silently silently hair follicles bristling the tale’s up, the fable’s read between shadow and light sharp eyes and teeth watches quietly, all the sheep following sheep off their slippery mountain cliff steeped in the blood of now lifeless others into the churning goodbye farewell adieu shark winning piranhas chasing dolphins mucky churning writing in a writhing burley All Trollish Sea stewed (LadyLabyrinth / 2020)

“Typically, bait is chopped up on the spot and thrown randomly overboard, or is placed in a chum tube and manually minced at intervals to disperse the bits and pieces of burley. The problem is, that without a constant steady stream, fish lose the trail and it's not as effective.”

I don't think so kimosabe, check your Bogs. no siree you don't want to stand in that mud for too long, you sink with all the blood suckers n.b. Noting that tonto in Spanish means “stupid” or “crazy,” some people have pointed out that kemosabe sounds a lot like the Spanish phrase quien no sabe, “he who doesn't understand.” Sending love, peace signs, sweet smelling flowers and all that transcendental stuff....Love Joy Bee, The Lone Ranger
