No water

only sky

fills this fishs brain.


No water

but a longing to fly

is in this fishs body.


Into the brimming ocean

she is emptying herself

incessantly, over centuries.


She passes by

small fish, big fish.

Lost in thought, this fish

asks herself oh,

where did your ocean



The swimming fish

repeats this question

as if it were a prayermantra.

The fish does not know

that sky has filled her brain


that the skullsmashing ritual

has already begun

inside her.
