Go Fish

It startled him

The monumental lines of architecture
Seemed to flex
As a bow drawn by its string

When the discharged tension
Shook the earth
As the mammoth thing
Quite simply
Leapt from the ground

From gravity
It swam lazily

Toward a horizon

So none pass by

For none remorse
Nor row against
The river’s course

The ripples
And the rapids play
The challenges
Of every day
