Favorite Quote:
"The world is a comedy to those who think, a tragedy to those who feel." -Horace Walpole


The stainless sea
The infallible sea
cannot move aside for me.

This emergency
My overture
into Fate afflicted society.

Cries!
every
tir
ing
circle of
unappreciated
irony.

Metallic
skin -

not
me.

I am only
a child

released

(pet
fish)

into

The stainless sea...
The infallible sea.

This poem is dedicated tho teenagers - exposed to society and not feeling quite ready to accept it, feeling like a pet fish into a challenging sea.
