The aquarium

We went to the aquarium today
and I had all the same queasiness
I knew I would have
about those big shiny bodies
enduring the strangeness of walls
but I also couldn’t help but see
the way they kissed their trainers
their big whale mouths
so tender against the skulls of men
it wasn’t just obedience
or a ploy for food
they traded their freedom
for love.
