why you write

your privileged fear of sharks
-and the history
only reminds me of myself
turned to bitter delight

still
there are many ways
to starve

i like the deliberate oxymorons (if that's the right word) here, 'privileged fear' and 'bitter delight'. & the contrast between the complexity of the first stanza & the simplicity of the second.

And the mystery of who 'you' is... forces one to think about what is being said

there y go, another comment longer than the poem!

You're style is quite unique. I love how the poem is short yet so straight to the bull's eye. It's so striking that you just have to read it more than once.

Good Job!
