A Fishy Tale

Sea Songs

shark tails
squishy snails
lumpy whales
and dolphins
anemones
and planckton
grasses waving skinny arms
a choir of love-struck plainfin
and coral reefs dissolvin
like sugar in your tea
a bush of kelp
that shouts for help
but we can’t hear them from the shore
a school of dreamy white-bait
a ballet troupe of skinny skate
all tangled up
in plastic trash
dumped here and there
and everywhere
and if you know
then tell your friends
that creatures we might never meet
have fears and tears like you and me
remember please
that when fish dream
its not of chips and mushy peas.
