Fish Incognito (Pointillism Art)

Painting and Poem by Dr Abe V Rotor

 A School of Grouper Fish (38" x 26"), AVR. Pointillism is an art style
of Impressionism in the later part of the 19th century in Europe by
French painter Seurat

Fish, tell me where you live, your home;
The ocean is so huge to be your own;
Fish answers: I am a fugitive in pursuit,
Hunted or hunter whichever may suit.    

Fish, tell me of your kin and your shoal;
How you live together as a school;
Fish answers: I live by the rules of the sea,
By number and luck, and by being free.  

Fish, tell me if I am friend to you, or a foe;
I gave you a name, regard you with awe;
Fish answers: Neither, I'd rather be unseen,
Far from the dreadful fate of your cuisine. ~
