Pisces

One swam up Tigris, his

brother up Euphrates but

some celestial joker tied

their tails together so,

tethered to the sea, they

made it to the headwaters but

no further though they tried,

flopping sullenly in

muddy pools, sometimes

thrashing their fins to

slop great gouts of

angry water downstream to

frighten and fertilize.

 

Brother mourned

brother marooned across

porous mountains which

sent them their runoffs–

reverse tears into the

cold gummy eyes of

lost fish.
