You Taught Me How To Eat


You taught me how to eat

by growing me to hunger.

You drifted by, fins spread,

until I was man enough to frighten you.

fishing fingers,

crossing mouths,

we have broken apart,

and now you are gone.

You split in the rebirth of a sun.

I reeled on the beach of time,

swollen with new breath.

I chased your memory with wine.

Now I walk the earth

as god swam the sea.

I loved one fish

to feed myself.
