If you met a wishing fish, for what would you wish?
Success? Friends? Followers?
More time? Money?
I just wondered.
I always thought I'd wish for more wishes,
and surely I'd be delighted with all the glitter,
and yet my late, great wish
is to soak up all of this daily dirt.
I even want to soak up the shock and frazzle of hot and cold in each day,
to celebrate the aliveness it means.
But especially, I want to soak up
the gleeful shouts
that make this life so beautiful.
That's my wish fish.
