Pepperoni the Goldfish


Let's zoom into a world that's not our own.
Let's pierce deeper than marrow, joints, and bone.
Come! Climb into another's skin!
Will you take on scales and fin?

I am Pepperoni, a pale orange goldfish.
In crystal waters, my tail goes swishy swish.
For two years, a hexagon has been my home,

But all I know is that I am so...so alone.

I've gone through a wall of bubbles a million times.
They forget to feed me sometimes.
I feel my frantic body hit the plastic walls.
All the silly decorations, here, are like wrecking balls.

Everywhere, algae grows.
Me, it seems, nobody knows.
