i think jellyfish are silly things.

maybe i’m a silly girl,
and weird for thinking of jellies
more than a normal person would.
but i think they’re pretty, and cool
and i’d raise one as a pet if i could.
i figure, God’s put them on the earth,
so someone should love them too.

sometimes, i wonder what i would be like
to be clear and float in the sea,
and sting whoever accidentally
swam below. (stop looking for metaphors,
really, i wanna be a jellyfish for a day.)

sometimes i think we’re all silly things,
with silly thought attached to silly strings,
that we drag along beneath us.
but i smile, and float on.

because jellyfish are silly things.
