Salmon


A Henry Moore sculpture whose surface has been cultivated with thyme,
sits in a tilted bowl-like park overlooking a large green lake where fishermen
in black waders gingerly whip hand-made flies across the surface at the entrance
of a secret stream. Overhead, feathered amoeba gliders brandish their mock vaginas
as they drift down from the faces of the surrounding cliffs to nest in the earcanals
of obelisks which figure in a ring around the lake whose center is a sink hole
designed to look like a single unblinking eye staring at the vast blue open sky.

Radiant Blue Salmon.
