Fish Scales

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2017

I see moons pass my window like
rain down the gutter,
days down the gutter,
they pool in the creases of my bed. 

Full moons between my blinds 
like fish scales. 
(the kind threaded on
Mother's collarbone).

I am stuck,
feel 
(everything nothing
     perfume of wet roads and 
leather seats trapped in me. 
Breath folded, pressed, held forever)

in four glass walls,
their beige cubicles)
choking on oxygen they can only
hope to breathe.

do fish feel regret? 
concrete all stone
no sand,
no water; this empty, empty land.
