My soul is like a tropical fish,

netted from muddy waters
in the nether parts of Asia.

Now I circle
in a four inch bowl
on a pet shop shelf.

I only display
my useless aurora of fins
to threaten my reflection in the mirror.

Sometimes I get the urge
to float upside down

but I usually get over it.
