Live Murray Cod $ 29.95 Per Kg

beside the barramundi tank
there is another one
full of water, empty of fish
with the label:
live murray cod $ 29.95 per kg

I suppose the live murray cod
no longer live:
the cod are out;
the $ are in

    I think this is brilliant Raj. A lovely slice of everyday life made into a poem. The narrative works brilliantly and gives the poem a truly modern feel.
