Goldfish

All of my goldfish have died
or evolved into legged creatures
that can’t be contained in glass bowls
except you, and even you
have little need of me, never more
than indifferently picking
at the sprinkle of nourishment
I offer.

You are content to remain
a solitary goldfish, never to grow
within the permanence of
your impervious sphere.

Are you talking about Precious? I think I'm a dog. Simple life, and I like my routine. :)
