The Breathing Effect - The Fisherman Abides


This product is sold out

the pier sees water-static
and a blinding phoenix

entropy displays its latest work
beneath a languid gallery
tempest proof, spoiled by clean air

an impenetrable cast leaves me
clambering on cold planks
while the gallery is rising inside

People watching people watching
every person that has
every single moment ever lived
impressed upon their wet gaze
and each one's more beautiful than the last

swimmers swim and lookers look, at no cost
no loss for a fisherman with new eyes

I'm acknowledged in a foreign tongue
as the wheelchair man makes another lap

walkers walk and talkers talk at no cost
no loss, for the seagull with new eyes

the sign reads: "No Overhead Casting,"
and the fisherman abides
