Operation fishtank

sat
with the dog
by my side
facing the pageant
of wide-screen
virtual fishtank
[highly recommended
in times of stress and
or important deliberation]
we followed the swishing
over and under, in and out
of incredibly complicated
minute barrier reef
imitations –
fish like blue pearls
fish like beach umbrellas
advertising beer
fish like baby pyjamas
fish like…
and then there came
a a a tiny red fish redder than red
and thin as a lipstick smear
and I swear the dog and I
looked at each other
wondering
if we’d really seen
what we’d just seen.
