Day Forty-One – “Koi” (In For A Penny / Dreamers)

In a cramped apartment on the seventh floor, you have a speckled orange and white koi tail and swim, bare-chested, amongst the soap suds in the kitchen sink. A little girl’s laughter overflows, forming mirrored puddles on the lino floor as you turn and dive again, disappearing beneath the surface and sending bubbles floating up into the air: they stain the kitchen windows with tiny circular rainbows as the sun begins to rise from behind the block of flats next door. She watches your hair fan out around you like seaweed and wishes she were small enough to join you.
