The Cod Philosopher

Of course,
life as a goldfish has its benefits,
and if that’s what we are,
and you are a goldfish,
you’d swim round my mouth;
I’d force you to listen.

but if I’m using “I”s and “ifs”
wrecklessly,
you have no need of your ears
and less need of my voice.

You are a goldfish,
I’ll stick to the laundry

You are romantic,
and I am a bore.
