Delicious Bottom Feeders

It sounded poetic in a carnivourous kind of way,
that while beer-battered cod made for nice pairings
with chips, halibut, the giant sea floor sucker,
with its mild, milk white texture is more delectable–

Like the right man often eclipses the good man,
Like the destination arrived at alone,
Like the understudy to Daniel Day Lewis

Logic is surreal. Daniel Day Lewis is no
bottom feeder, and I
no lover of fish nor poetics.
