"dazzle gradually"

"Dazzle Gradually" 2016 poems, paintings, new art & photography--a diary, a discipline, a delight. Read over my shoulder as I post my unedited poetry ---you can see it in the raw.

My Seoul is dying

My Seoul is dying,
I don’t know why.
I put it in a little bowl
I’ve fed it everything I know,
but my Seoul is dying.

I tried salt water, spring,
distilled, and those little drops
which are supposed to help,
but my Seoul is dying.

I tried gold fish food,
dried pieces of shrimp,
exotic fish pellets,
and little chips,
but my Seoul is dying.

I tried a bigger bowl,
a ceramic castle,
and a live sea snail,
but my Seoul is dying.

I tried Christian music,
and rock ‘n roll,
but my Seoul is dying.

I told him I loved ‘im
and I started crying,
but my Seoul is dying.

If you got any directions
on how to take care of a Seoul,
let me know,
‘cause . . .
