Mekong Fish Stories


We Vietnamese have cheap
and tasty catfish.
Mississippi catfish growers
didn’t want our fish.
They went to US court
to say in Vietnam they
do not have real catfish.
We changed
our fish’s name
to Basa. But it’s catfish.


Giant carp
can be
big as
a big bus.


We have dog eating
catfish. Google it
for a picture. You
don’t want to walk
your dog
near this river.

Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.
