Stages: VI

I am a fish
A wish
An uneaten dish
You lured in but chose to let go;
Angling for sport
Line caught
Unwelcome in port
Your appetite hopeless to know.

Stages: V

I am a boat
A coat
A murder she wrote
That’s cast off but never departs;
Rendering pain
That constant refrain
Withstanding the dark of your arts.
