Zoo Project

Fish Surgery

Fish surgeon:
this sturgeon
needs a bypass


The nurse glug glugs
and gives up
on sterilizing anything

in this mess of weedy
fishtank -- why
did she become a nurse
anyway. Days like these
she'd rather be
someone's lunch.

But then beep...beep...
and the sturgeon's
back again. The surgeon's
fins snap, snap as he removes
his plastic gloves, and he says
"that's why we're in this business.
Saving fishes' lives."

Lemme narcissize this jot and maybe I'll elicit a thumbs up to go ahead and give you that coffee enema now, no?
