Arbiter: Something Fishy

Saturday morning

on the boardwalk

by the pool,

two streams


down to it.

Three big fish

close to the surface

some 30 goldfish

packed below.


They know their place

in the scheme

of things and a

wisdom in avoiding

what might transpire

if someone throws

something in.


The big fish are confident,

entitled and rule easily.

They imagine strategies

and what-ifs

as they wait for me

to do something,

to change the otherwise

placid flow of

many lives here.
