Rivers of clouds swim overhead,
parting blue with sure, even strokes.
It's a Mackerel sky.  I, at
the ocean bottom of air, think
about fish:  do they see human
beings in their waters, above?

(c) 2008, Karla Dorman (1/19)

Reviewed by Charlie 1/19/2008
This is exactly how I used to think the world was-- water with fish in it, air above where humans dwelled-- then sky where birds were a different kind of fish, and from there, the ozone where clouds grazed like cattle, and above that... and on and on... Your poem is emaculate. I'm saving it. --Charlie
