Go Figure

by Sarah Sarai

My head is a goldfish bowl,
which,
no problem,
must be filled with water and stocked
so I live a life of interest.
With 360+
reference points
coming     going     rushing by
I do.
Erectness’s a plus.
Who needs sleep?
Perfect posture’s compensation.
Goldfish flit
in a solution of depth.
With water as the brain mostly
I intellect steamers,
ebb/flow     good tidings     daylong.
I am Queen of my castle,
dipping pink-fingers
into murky me.

Compression Statement: A goldfish is not a basking shark nor is it a whale shark. It is a small and tender creature, and golden, and peers through aquatic wonders to see you. It says Hi. Like this poem. Hi!
