I click on the bell

enjoy the joke from the Episcopalians

feel commiseration rise

with the friend engaged in struggle

someone has liked my comment

there are fish in it again

why did I say that

when

is it celebration or complaint

are the fish in ice cream

or the living room

is the letterbox stuffed with them

does the jam taste funny

another click will take me to

solution

I don’t go there

my life is better full

of fins and scales

mysterious water-breathing things

rising random to the surface
