分享作品_fishbone dream

By Matthew Sweeney

Fishbones lay in the smelly bin.

He was a head, a backbone and a tail.

Soon the cats would be in for him.


He didn’t like to be this way.

He shut his eyes and dreamed back.


Back to when he was fat, and hot on a plate.

Beside green beans, with lemon juice squeezed on him. And a man with a knife and fork raised, about to eat him.


He didn’t like to be this way.

He shut his eyes and dreamed back.


Back to when he was frozen in the freezer.

With lamb cutlets and minced beef and prawns.

Three month he was in there.


He didn’t like to be this way.

He shut his eyes and dreamed back.


Back to when he was squirming in a net,

with thousands of other fish, on the deck of a boat. And the rain falling wasn’t wet enough to breathe in.


He didn’t like to be this way.

He shut his eyes and dreamed back.


Back to when he was darting through the sea,past crabs and jellyfish, and others likes himself. Or surfacing to jump for flies and feel the sun on his face.


He liked to be this way. He dreamed hard to try and stay there.


個人覺得真的是太慘了吧,不過也很真實,每當面對不好的事情,總是會想要裝作回到過去,粉飾太平。


尤其是最後一句,He liked to be this way. He dreamed hard to try and stay there. 讓我很有感觸,因為對他而言,過去美好的生活已經是一個奢望,一個永遠也不可能實現的願望。
