Two Fish

Posted January 19, 2011 & filed under Notebook.

Two fish went to the deep blue sea,
One got eaten by a shark,
Then there was one.
One fish went to the deep blue sea,
One got eaten by a shark,
Then there were none.
Zero of the fish are in the deep blue sea.
Only their bubbles left,
And they pop, pop, pop.

The Ocean is My Cousin

I tell her, I am cold.
She splashes warm water on me.
I tell her, please make me handsome.
She gives me a crown of swordfish.
I tell her, I am hungry.
She gives me good fish to eat.
I tell her, I am tired.
She gives me a blanket of scales.
I tell her, I want to play.
She gives me turtle shells to throw in the sky.

City of Dreams

Darkness, black, specks of light, swim
closer, light in the city of dreams,
population, fish, buildings, coral, shock,
flash, a fish beside me, he was slightly
transparent, flew into me, and I came to
be a fish, he flew out, I was human so I
called him Mistia, I gave him that name
because it was by that name he was
known on the streets and in the houses
of that magical city, no air, must breathe,
and he flew into me again to forever stay.

My Fish

My fish live in
my house.
They blow bubbles
all day long.
They breathe through
their gills quietly.
I feed them with a
little, tiny spoon.
They don’t make any
noise when they swim,
but all together they look like a rainbow –
orange, red, yellow, brown.
They’re friendly fish.
I know because when I put
my finger in the tank,
they don’t bite too hard.
