All that remains: here in my afterlife as a 'mainstream' blogger, with what little I know.

Word Play-ish
Aloofish

I'm not good in these social circles
Standoffish, aloofish
A dry fish
As they greet with smiles
Arms outstretched
Hugs
Jealous is the fish

Why doesn't that come naturally
To one so scaly,
Bulge-eyed
Peering sideways glances
Can't wrap a head around
What it's seeing
Translate

If I touch someone
It's going to mean something
Earthquaking,
Time-transcendant,
Meaningful embraces
If they'll have
Aloofish, foolish,
Dry-eyed and cold.



Come on. Say it:
One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish.
That's what I'm thinking, upon rereading.
