Nice Fish: New and Selected Prose Poems


All fish can have different disliked fish, including the Nice Fish.

Claire van Kampen’s bold direction and Todd Rosenthal’s set make Nice Fish an eye-widening spectacle. The action happens on an expansive sheet of ice against an ever-changing sky.

A detailed puppet takes the place of a character who has travelled into the far background.

It was a bit sporty in the morning and calmed down as the day went on. We had about 25 mangos, 3 sheepshead, 3 tripletail, and 3 nice hogfish. The fish all preferred shrimp presented on a jig head or fishfinder rig. The knocker rig did not fare as well.
