Gold Fish Aren't Gold...

Gold Fish

aren't gold
you know
but orange
and slippery
with thin frilly
fins and
eyes like
marbles and
mouths that YAWN

Today I watched them
swimming silently
smoothly around and around
and occasionallykissing the glass
walls of their enclosure and
I wondered if they were aware of how
incredibly boring their lives were
or were they perhaps having an intense mystical experience?

  3. Congrats to the happy couple. Do they like gold fish? Susan
