FISH DANCE

that massive stack of pancakes
looked more delicious than your selfie on the beach
though the likes kept coming and Darleen said, "Wow"
and Jimmy said, "Don't forget the sunscreen LOL"
and i wondered once again what the fuck (WTF!) we're doing
posting images of our fat old selves and other people's pets and all this
political flim-flam and jesus, betty, hillary is old news but we just keep
scrolling and liking and laughing out loud while the hours tick by
and we're so obviously neck deep in wreckage wrought by the decades
but here we are, putting our best faces forward,
two fish in a bowl, almost forgotten,
 tooling along the bottom searching for nuggets amid the shit and stones
