Breakfast Shrimp

‘Shrimp Fishing’ image from (Creative Commons)

Inspired by Forrest Gump’s shrimp-fishing adventure.

I wake up, still in fog of
sleep, and plunge
back in to oceans deep.

Sinking, floating, not
quite ready
to make the trip
deep down forever.

So reaching up, with
weary arms, I gasp for air –
consume a fish.

It’s just a shrimp, hardly
fills my toes.
I gasp, struggle, grapple
for another.

A bag of oats.
Reality kicks in.
