i missed my fish today
i keep calling my new fish
by my old fish's name
my heart strings dropped
pulling my eyes to water
that morning when i saw
doz whiter then usual
and laying in an uncommon
fish position: upside down.
i still havent let go
but scared my roommate
when she found my pet
frozen in a container
waiting to be sealed in acrylic.
sometimes late at night
i go to say hi to
his now rock solid body
though i probably look pathetic
standing over a plastic bag,
it is ok
