I was a fish



I was a fish,


I swam free

return me to the sea.

I was born this morning

in the bedroom doorway

passing through a time portal

in the back yard.

When you are dreaming

next to me

I slip a thread of silver

from my hair

and tie it to your toe.

When the moon is full

we twirl naked

the blue whales sing

I open my mouth when

stars spill out,

I am a gravity well.

Your eyes are the color of

a cornfield sky sighing

in the heat

I lick salt from your palm

the taste is sweet.

Before you met me

I was a fish,


I swam free

when this dream is over

return me to the sea.
