Every day is a swim in a vast ocean….
one day i was a fish
swimming with many other fish
within an arctic sea.
there were so many lines;
they came from the sky
and went down
and ended in cherry plastic.
fish who bit them were pulled up
into the surface
(where we were told never to go)
i’ve heard it’s a whole new world up there.
the red was beautiful
the surface was new
(i couldn’t help it)
and rode a hook to the hole in the sky
out i shot.
who knew the surface was so free?
it’s a shame i’ll need to breathe soon.
but it’s alright; i’m just dreaming.
nobody would want a fish like me.
