Aquarium

Fish gods preside

over seas of glass bowls

suspended in air

resting on tables

in domiciles of the gill-less

The fish note with concern

the pumps have ceased working

and waters grow foul

Their hosts lay sprawled

Their worldview from the bottom

of clear liter bottle, blue label

They perish

in tanks of their own
