Something born without a voice
has no choice
and dies without complaining.
It wants out of that bowl
with all of its soul
and it's so entertaining....

sitting across from my fishbowl
watching my little goldfish 
wandering -

had she an iPhone
who would she first call
would it be me
or some guy named Paul

Where goldfish swivels through moss

Its fine gills aglow---

With such aquatic prowess
As it wiggles restlessly
