Ask anyone who knows
the stars and they’ll tell
you the two of us are
not well-matched. 

Each of us should 
have had a virgo
or a taurus, earth
signs to keep us

How did we two fish
swim against the
celestial tides
to each other?

Truth be told
you don’t fit
the pisces bill
as well as I do—
I’m mostly parades
and you’re mostly

But I like the rain,
without it, nothing
would grow and
growing together
is the joyous work
of marriage.

Astrologists may
know the stars
but they don’t 
know us.

-From one fish to another, with love
