You Are Who You Eat

I went fishing once

and the fish caught me

cause I couldn’t gut it

I couldn’t keep it

I had to let it go

seeing its fish eyes bulging

watching it dying in the air I breathed

was too much for this ten year old to take

so I tossed it bleeding and bloodied

back into the lake

that was the day

I stopped eating sushi

and I’ll stop eating steak

when I have such an intimate connection

with a cow.
