A Poem by ScaryTrees
"

huh?

"
the prize big black goldfish with the googly eyes
has jumped well out of the tank once more onto
the cold hardwood floor with an audible slap so
i am forced from repose into emergency action
again i will trap the slippery flopping miserable form
in the careful cup of my hand and drop him back down
into the tank with his oblivious calico schoolmates
although i suspect and accept this time will not be the last
after all he has not been the same since johnny cash died
