Whale - Poem by Nassy Fesharaki


I had heard
Books had said
Funny were stories
Apocalypse; sounded myth

Man bare hand
Fighting saw of a carpenter
In the sea, which is fish
Whale keeping Prophet in tummy

Ships stopped at borders
“Pay your tax, ” said the sea monsters.
Captain would select passenger
Thrown in by crew

“Woman surfed; and was killed.”
Jennifer is her name.
(Grey whale)
It was in Mexico.

“So the myths were true.”
I whisper.
