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

and did not reply
but i knew why.

its scaly body

tiny mouth

gasping for air –
flapping –

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:

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!
