odd fish

through the watery moods
of black night
odd fish
swim

unseen
but felt
like
a ripple

an eddy

dancing
across the skin

(turn quickly)

just there

(turn quickly)

over there

the fish of the night
swim swift

just …………………………….. there

just there

the tide
of the night
ebbs assurance
away

the jetsam
is littered
on the nerves

on a jangling headland
of fear
at the heart

and the fish swim by
unseen at all
whether tide has come in
or whether no

hist

did you feel
that

did you feel that
did you see

a movement
(turn quickly)

just there

just there

the odd fish
of night
swims

right
here
