Catch of the Day by Susan Howe

What is your favourite fish?
said the cat.
Anxious to please, I said,
Catfish are smart!
I caught my mistake
in his whiskery grin,
and the way he sloshed cream
on his jellyfish tart.

Susan Howe‘s stories and flash fictions have been published and placed in competitions many times. A proud but displaced Yorkshirewoman, brevity is in her DNA.
