"Don't you get tired of swimming?"
I ask.  "What's 'Swimming.'
and why don't  you do it?" he
replies.  I say, "Well,
they blew it: I have no fin
to propel in

He circles the rim of
his big glass bowl.  He's
gorgeous, he's aqua and gold,
traces of bronze, bright blue
as the sea.  A half-moon,
double tail male, totally
free.  A loner, like me.

    I liked reading this one today, NOla. Sometimes it is nice to be a loner.
