Dropped your stone in my pond

Sank without trace.

Past the hulks

and sunken treasures.

Bounced off my buried face.

Not in the mood for determination,

- busy being submerged.

Writing out of obligation

Just havenít got the urge.

In my sub-aqua psyche

Iím a dark patrolling fish

Poisonous and spiky.
