Dear Abigail, now a widow, with respects for her deceased,
said he was a frail, old man... as she begged for release

Though her uncles and cousins and twice removed parents,
knew all along that she’d been transparent

Straining for a kind of ‘split-pea’ reality,
explaining how her hubby was such a bad tease

She said, "I once cocked my ankle on the path through the garden,
imagine my sorrow, in shiny new shoes"

(How shallow of her to ask for sardines, I thought...)

“Then he stubbed his left toe right on my left ear-lobe,
so, still wearing my bathrobe, I buried him in snow!”

She sneezed so distastefully as I listened with interest,
when she screamed out in rich and moderate tones...

"I'm a fish!"

...and I was forevermore hooked with her ‘up-scale’ demeanor,
though “Dear Abby” never saw fit to write me again

An investment in swim fins was a small enough loss,
for the hope dear Abigail would give me a toss...


The End

I want some of what you were having when you wrote this. Don't know why, but it tasted a bit like Alice in Wonderland.  Maybe it's more about what I'm having and how late it is. Anyhow,it was a fun read and I enjoyed it.
I think I'll call it my bedtime story. ~L

...Hmm. Really, Lori Rhoden? Tasted more like baked Salmon with a California Chardonnay to me.

Abigail was no ordinary fish, Miss Lori The old man? I don't think he'll be found until after Spring thaw.  

Thanks for reading...

That sounds a little fishy to me Bluesy...
I plead the 5th on whatever I said, I was talking in my sleep. ~L
