How To Serve A Suffocated Fish - Poem by Saiom Shriver

How to serve a suffocated
fish?
First cut off his fin
It's his steering wheel
Then chop off his lungs
He can't breathe without
his gills.
Then gouge out his eyes
for he no longer needs to
see
And scrape off those
inedible diamonds
.. his diving suit scales.
Tattletell
of the size of his tail..
and how you left
in the water
a wake of bloody trail.

De-gut him, deluded
into thinking..his
guts are more putrefied
than the rest of his flesh.
Then grill his gills
and fry his eyes
and bake his mad fish muscles
and maybe wish on his bones.

How to serve a fish:
cast your bread upon
the waters in which he
freely swims.
