All right, this I gotta see hear! (Voice File, and you should make little fishy noises in the background!)
I'll go ahead and post it. I tried a voice file, but the playback did a lot of skipping regardless of my attempts to fix it. The symbolism might be a bit cryptic, so I don't know if I was successful in communicating the idea. I can explain if there are questions. It might at least help to know the unifying metaphor is gold which I intended to represent a person's true self and value. There are other metaphors on top of that. It was really challenging to try to do the whole surreal, random thing while trying to unify the idea.
My Transsexual is a Goldfish
My goldfish is a cloud that swims along a current.
The cloud had wind to grow, expanding soft golden hues.
It covers what I thought was supposedly the moon,
The gold of which can melt whenever hidden from sight.
I reached to touch the moon, it burnt my fingers sorely.
Like centipedes they ran, at least that is what I saw.
They returned as spiders spinning, golden, silken gloves.
I asked if they intended to crawl inside once finished.
They said they would rather find a river or a pond.
I asked myself a question knowing thereís no right answer.
What would happen to one if they fell into water?
Would they become a fish, or would they be another?
