Written On The Water - Poem by Alexandre Nodopaka

There's this image of a shored skiff
and the man next to it whimpers,
It has nothing to do

with the image of the Son of God
or water-boarding or fishing.
The metaphor deals with Man's fate

battling cosmic forces
and retrograde Mercury.
No, it has nothing to do with

the brand name of the engine maker
or the silvery heavy metal liquid
in thermometers.

It deals with the Greek god of finance
and poetic eloquence. Like in,
Have bucks will travel over water.

The way Jesus did.
