Walking Catfish

have always facinated me
it's a myth, a fairy tale
i wonder how a fish could walk
sounds like teaching a stone to talk

but once after a South Florida rain
following weeks of the very same
while walking down a wet paved street
i met small catfish on their feet

a jazzy type of walk was theirs
more a series of belly flops
a trickle is all they need to walk
now i wait for a stone to talk

The stone to talk was a "gotsha!" line.

I've heard of those, Henry. They're actually not supposed to be there but man has a way of "screwing things up." Anyway. Thanks for this. I like your ending. Everything is possible. Love and peace. Regis

Believe it or not I have seen this happen as I am an avid fisherperson. Catfish are easy to clean for me Sue as I let my husband do it.
Reviewed by Sue Hess 3/25/2005
i have a confession...i'm afraid of catfish. i tried to clean one once and it was a total disaster, the fish won and i've been afraid of them every since. except for the ones in Catfish Haven in Russville Alabama...with a side of cole slaw and a big slice of onion

They truly are amazing, Henry - I saw them once, too, down South.
And a talking stone - now that truly would be something!
