River

You are a cutthroat trout,
Mr. Floppy Feeble Hands,
push up river,
rush to spurt
more like you;
pump,
jump, and
hump;
blinded by purpose pixels,
pieces of something bigger
unseen, and
humbled by repeated deceit,
you miss our true forces
failing;
your time unknowingly wasted
begging and bartering
bigger pieces of the diminishing
river resources,
ever shrinking,
and you are
missing
the more
in our mortality;
stop swimming;
it’s time to reconsider
the objective.

    • Thank you. You’re reading it right. There’s anger implied, and concern from the teller that the personal anger in the voice might override the universal meaning in the words.
