I swam in a school of fish like this,
my body whirling as one of them in warm waters.
I stirred the seeds in a white bowl and
they swarmed like fish in an ocean
following unseen currents, head to tail
the outer ones flashing their wide backs,
the inner ones swimming sideways
crammed against one another, finally
diving deep below before rising up
at the very edges only to circle
inwards once again.
