Found: A Foot Out of Water

It was just a foot
in the running gutter,
just hanging

It looks like
a bloody big squealing
fish to me,
he said.

  4. A perfect reflection of Bosch. (K)


  5. An interesting perspective – though I agree with he said – a fish.


  6. Surrealism at its best, Misky. Either that or he’s having DTs 😉


  7. Goodness this is incredibly potent! 💝💝 I believe the fish prey on fish.. better to take their example and be cautious. 🙂
