Consumed

 

Small fish

my awareness of

disharmony in my foyer

light refracted off of

tiny scales of my responses

But for a second as it’s

slippery presence becomes noticed,

then passes

with a fleeting glance.

 

Slightly bigger fish

consumes  criticisms

and disappointments

from my day

this one bites the hook

fights back

but is reeled in just the same.

 

Bigger fish yet

fed by anxiety

It knows the food chain

is inevitable

so it darts

like a pinball

bouncing off of

a course of emotional

triggers on it’s run

 

The largest fish

you ever saw

it’s rage consumes all

and leaves me

shaking for days

each time I think about it

 

If I choke on the bones of

this latest manifestation

is it possible to remember the smaller start to this

geometrically expanding cycle?

 

If I choose not to bite

the first time

can my awareness build

on love instead
