thirteen fishes' shadows
i am shadows learning to speak languages.
tongue is not pretty, joy tells me when we are
songs to sleep in lumber. we are an evolved
mistake. i am certain dark that leaves in dark. a
mouth if you can speak tongue in 24 seconds.
there is not much logic in stories of ghost. i am
ghost with a mouth, gaping silence. sometimes
i waltz in empty rooms, i follow voices that
dance in empty rooms. look mother, i can
finally dance. i am thirteen fishes' shadow
beneath ocean loving a woman. only to learn
i am silhouette between a light and surface.
