Alien Inquiry: A Carp’s Fish Out Of Water Experience

By One Comment1 min read

fish talk to each other

do you
believe in Aliens?

i asked the carp
torn out the river

by my passionate
fisherman friend.

it glistened
under the blazing
sun

and did not reply
but i knew why.

its scaly body
impaled,

tiny mouth
unhooked

gasping for air –
flapping –

quick
snap this look.

he held it
in both hands,

only my friend
was smiling.

he tossed it back
to be fair
into the water.

do you think
the carp barked:

“WTF
did i encounter?”

  • Today, I went too the beach ith my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daugyhter and said
    “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic
    but I had to tell someone!
