Scenarios/ Ontic Delusion

So un-
Japanese
the camera
frames
feminine
space
against
all samurai
etiquette;
as a child Kurosawa
on the screen
with itching ears
scrutinizes his father’s
metronymic
insults
"Idiot i.e. cuckoo bird,
are you trying to make
    me commit suicide?"
        "Mother’s silence
and repetition of this act
is an act of rebellion
    against all samurai male
        dominance:"
sez miller the feminist critic.
     Kurosawa’s camera
     frames
     the
     fish
     head
     pointing
     left to
     right with
     fishbelly
     facing
     the father’s
     belly.

A.P. Moller

        The coroner’s report
        smacked of fish.
        A.P. Moller’s
death was the result
        of a freak
air bag which failed to prevent
A.P. from having the steering wheel
planted through his skull into
his forebrain
        when the steering column
        was thrusted backward
        and A.P.’s Mercedes
brakes failed
and the Benz
jumped off the road into a huge willow
        weeping tree to avoid
        killing a shepherdless
        flock
        of sheep.
    "Fishy"
    the only word
    the Negro coroner
    uttered
        over and over
    "Fishy"
        was all he said
after lifting from A.P.’s right breast pocket
the Small photo
of A.P.’s wife
and four
children
posing like New Age Manderins in blue jeans
    and flowing silk robes
    on the Great Wall of China
        during one of A.P.’s
samauri business
vacation-raids.
        On the back
        of the four by six
        photo
        A.P.’s wife writes: "Daddy-o
do I love you
    cause you always bring home the bacon."
"Fishy" means the Negro coroner thinking about
what Christ said: "It is harder for a rich
        man to enter heaven,
than a camel to pass through the eye of a needle."
