The Lady and the Fish17:30
I once had a Brother.
He was a fish.
Not saying a word he was the clever creature I have ever known.
Our mom was a siren and our father was a sea bass with a fisher soul.
My Brother was always looking after me,
always listening when I was talking.
always cheering me up when I needed to be.
Yes, he was tender and silent. I had no need for company when he was around bubbling.
I once had a fish Brother but he was caught by a fishing net
and rejected only once he was dead.
Now I am swimming alone in this endless ocean
Yelling at all fisher boats in the sad blue sea.
