The Night Before


I was in the grocery store
where instead of aisles
there were pyramids of food
cans
fresh greenbeans
waiting

And in the back
where the drinking fountain 
sits
I stood looking at a fish tank

small
dirty water carrying little
fish populating
unsure how they were living

my eyes 
gazed to the right
a large tank held two gold carp

One came to the side
staring
I spoke to it like a pet
OOOHHH....
while it nuzzled up to the glass
I knew it understood my words

Out of the clear water
the sparkled fish
was on my side
when I couldn't decide whether
to be running down the aisles
or letting it be

An unknown woman
spoke
telling me not to not be afraid
I knew she was right!!
but when I felt the gentle jaws
around my waist

I woke
