Aquarium IV


I know that someday I must die
finish empty, cracked and dry
high aback the closet shelf
of my former self a shell
quelled my tune, my vistas void
all my ironies for nought
bubble-maker fired;
plug pulled, motor all fizzed out
my ruined ecologies
crammed with fish-like memories
but not for me.

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
