I bought a swimsuit already. Do you remember I was going to teach you to swim? And the world was going to fade away. All except for the mirror you floated on and your smiles that dance like butterflies in my eyes. The universe nothing but these two fishes. The water is getting cold. I swim in this bowl alone. I don’t know why we missed. We were on a head-on collision but somehow passed right through one another. Your trace is all over me like dust. I cannot breathe. I am not a fish. Why’d you leave me here alone? You were going to teach me to fly. That was the deal. Flying for swimming. I guess that is a lesson learned. Be taught to fly before you jump in the water to teach the bird to swim.
