A selfish fish

by Timothy Burns

A selfish fish
of subliminal
grace.

The flight
manifest
says
"idle"
for 3 hours..
What does that
mean?

And each new
memory will
erase a very
sour
ache
in all of us.

Every time you
multiply
you are tampering
with the fates.

The sog in my lungs
from the
humidity
makes them hurt
when it
gets

cold.

A curious place to swim, I think. ;)

I like the 3rd stanza best.

The melody in this poem is engaging.
