Fourteen fish
bunched
like a silver
artichoke

They are traveling
farther
than their fathers

who never
left the river

Their futures
are
in lemons
and
bread crumbs

The artichoke image is great. Also, that their futures are in lemons and bread crumbs. Awesome.

Ha! Really nice. I totally agree Qner - the juxtaposition of the "farther than their fathers" with "futures in lemons and bread crumbs" works so well.
