Anadromous love

And  when I am strong enough …
Hello red fish-
Where have you been, my friend?
Alaska, Costa Rica, or Portland?
And can I come?
Remember when we shared a bowl of quinoa?
Remember when we got kicked out of the gay bar?
Remember when I needed money and you didn’t have it technically but you got it for me anyway because you love me and hate to see me scared?
Remember when you said that I could do better than him and him and him?
Let’s swim upstream…
And  when I am strong enough to swim…
Hello blue fish-
What are you doing, my friend?
A Co- worker, homework, a tall cold beer?
And can I have some?
Remember when we sang Queen songs in the car?
Remember when we were alien gods?
Remember when you checked under my paisley dress to be sure that I had panties on?
Remember when you said that he wasn’t good enough and you’d had enough of me crying myself to sleep?
Let’s travel to the sea
And  when I am strong enough to swim to the ocean…
Hello silver fish-
What’s new, my friend?
Comics, or comedy or co-habitating?
And can I be your soft fin rays
Remember when you said that you loved me?
Remember when I said that you could take me right then?
Remember when you hugged me last and I acted like it didn’t mean anything and tried hard not to smell your chest for too long?
I would say let’s swim upstream..
I would say let’s travel to the sea…
But you’re so fresh water
And I want you with me…
Blue fish says I’m stupid
Red fish tends to agree
But I’ve never let them control me
like you do every time I come home again
With you I want to die of exhaustion
From spawning……..
Just remember me
Remember me
remember… me.

    1. Oh you meant how are they doing… oh my goodness, that took too long to figure out. I am still recovering from silverfish. I don’t get to speak to red fish any more. blue fish is fine he just makes me so sad now.
