I’m drawn to any animal that lives longer than man: koi, turtles, parrots, whales, octopus..ect. There’s something about having to will your fish to someone after you keel over that seems right. And oddly, it seems safer to love. The average dog lasts about 8 years then has to buried in the back yard.

Tonight I am thinking about “safe love” and I am sure it has something to do with longevity. And fish. When the person I love no longer remembers my name, there will be this beautiful silver line swimming somewhere.

Maybe this is an explanation for a dog's unshakable affection.

Just in case you need it pointed out to you, there's a poem in there. Hi, poem. :)
