At the bottom of my fishbowl,
my goldfish likes to hide.
He hides in his castle
and ignores the mermaid at his side.
I like to think
that he’s a dreamer.
Playing with his rocks
and rising up to devour
the snacks I provide.
Maybe he thinks
he’s a shark from the deep.
Perhaps he dreams
of freedom from peering eyes.
Then again,
he could believe
that he’s just a fish in a fishbowl-
trapped in a bowl,
with only a castle in which he can hide.

Prompt: At the Bottom of the Fishbowl
