Shown at Wooosh Gallery, July 2019.
In loving memory of Fish (2014-2019).
accompanied by a burial-based event and a text-based eulogical work, as follows:
little swimmer from my room, through clear glass I watched you zoom
to the surface, to the gravel - shortest swims your fins would travel,
you kept my company, you hid, all under dusty plastic lid
kept me on the straight and narrow, through the deep and through the shallow
in separate realms yet side by side, in flower pots we both could hide
but now I have to swim alone
and write fish poems on my phone
from the water, to the ground
smallest friend, sleep safe and sound
