THE PRAYER OF THE GOLDFISH
forever I turn in this hard crystal,
so transparent, yet I can find no way out.
deliver me from the cramp of this water
and these terrifying things I see through it.
Put me back in the play of your torrents,
in your limpid springs.
Let me no longer be a little goldfish
in its prison of glass,
but a living spark
in the gentleness of your reeds. Amen.
