Piscean fish thoughts

Darting silvery
Across Neptune’s lair;
Vainly trying to elude
The Water-bearer’s techno madness

Driftnets of greed
Dualistic delusions
Set against ourselves

Consumer culture
Cancers itself after
Opiate sleep;

Television nation
Terrapin station
Evolutionary platforms
Against the Uranian tide
