I must say I've never been remotely convinced by the angler's claim that fish don't feel pain when their entire weight is being suspended on a barbed hook caught in their mouths - I've even been known to express my doubts that the maggot that was wriggling there earlier as bait was doing so in the thralls of the pleasurable tickling sensation it must be feeling - but apparently there's been a 'study' of the phenomenon, and "research shows" (don't you just love that phrase?) that fishies have feelings, too.

keep your armadillos healthy with a teasel in their tea -
wash their paws in guacamole and their tails in the sea;
no self-respecting 'dillo goes to bed in dirty socks,
so be sure to boil them nightly -
keep them free from sparrow-pox,
read them tiny Taoist tropes,
rescue grandad from the zoo -
if your armadillo's happy - why, then you'll be happy too.

we went up north and Bo was taught how to kick down off one of
these by an older mentor on crutches called Graham (would I make that up?)

the wise old rhino used to say that perplexity is often the gateway to understanding.
it's all deeply mysterious.
in the meantime, I've found that it sometimes helps just to contemplate something bigger than all of it, like
the northern lights.
