Speak Fish


is it so effortless to be fish
getting   those  tiny  bones
hitched   into    the    spine
fins   fanning   out   just so

oh   tell  me     scales  how
you  flash  scores  of  hues
as   if   each  knows  about
the       other         meshing

and    shimmering   as  one
countless    silvery     blush
speak    fish    or    don’t   if
all  be    other   than    easy
