I Will Do Nothing Ever Forever (Corrected for spelling)


The sharks will circle you instead of attacking and watch as you float without heed or attacking arms toward violent whirlpools and heavy waterfalls. There are a mix of them: Macos, Hammerheads, Card Sharks, Talent Scouts, Well-Wishers, dreaded Taco Sharks and Doubting Thomases. They scrape their knives along their plates in the middle-waters of the ocean with long snorkels providing their air (both literally and of distinction, of course).


Meanwhile, along the surface, nasty birds rest on top of the apparatus-- rustling their feathers in half-shivers as ships pass. Would that floating were so easy for the sharks. They move with hard working musles underneath talented flippers. Good living for ugly creatures.


Our fathers would never be proud of such swimming-- they would slink along aqfter us with condeming words or perch next to the birds criticizing us to all that listen. It is their way to sit above us on upholstered thrones while we salvage the treasures of muck. It is and it isn't, that is, that is.


Oh, right, the sharks. They are a pictures of perfect movement-- no wasted energy-- now that danger for one of their subjects becomes imminent. They are crispy-thick with gluttonous laughter-- bubbles careening with reckless abandon to the surface while we slip through the worst parts of our notions of survival. Light is dead, life is a single purpose and fading as the singular thread of survival becomes obsolete. The sharks are giddy with bloodlust, but decide not to feed but to watch.


We grazed chalkboards and emotionless, we gleaned our days and watched the sharks wash up to our gardens, but no one warned us that we would be this bored while panicked.

(And with that nugget of needlessness and frivolity, I am off for a long while. The dead kudzus of Carolina call. G'bye and g'luck.)

Crazy mother fucker you kill the planet when you kill the sharks.
Humans are so studip sometimes.
When the Ocean will be empty every body will die on this planet and nothing today can justifie the genocide of sharks or tiger or any predators or animals on the earth.
Sharks don't exist to kill humans dude like lions in the savannah. don't search to be the king of stupidity.

People, you need to understand that the ocean is the the sharks home. That is there environment, they thrive in the ocean. Sharks live in the water, without that they die. When we go in the water we in in there territory, they can do as they please. Going to the beach, snorkling, scuba diving, and all other water sports is a risk that you take when you enter the water. In this case the risk is huge, you can lose a limb, or your life. Just because someone goes snorkling, and gets attacked by a shark, does not mean to go on a shark killing spree. If you are not willing to take that risk, simple, stay out of the water. Simple as that.

Just to clarify, you dumb bastards, I found that picture on the internet and stole it to indemnify the poem I wrote that contained a shark metaphor. I like sharks, and have never purposefully killed one.

Jesus living Christ, I'm not a fifty-year-old beachcomber with a vivacious vocabulary. I'm a NYC resident who writes shitty poetry. Leave this pitiful blog alone.
