Day 257 – Elephants and Goldfish

Ask me a relevant question
like a fisherman’s hook in my mouth
and I’ll swim around, my big round eyes
will tell you I never, ever knew
and you’ll let me escape

but sing me a song I’ve forgotten
like a hunter’s spear through my heart
and I’ll sing it back to you
with all the quiet harmonies
still in place
