Yin-Yang Fish (A Poem by Santi Tafarella)


The highest cloud

blocking the sun




and the clouds below it,

and the boat sails,


and the capping

waves and gulls




into brilliant



even as you,



on the beach,

felt something


scaled and round

beneath your feet


and, yes, still soft. 


Sobered by Camus,

you stepped 


back, and



the grounds,

and would


not look


down, but took

your coffee
