I let into the house

the demon of the fish pond

it wandered away from the water

and got lost in the garden

when I cracked the door that was it

it sped in and now I can't get

the damn thing out of my chair

sucking down sardines and goldfish

and spitting the bones out on a plate

good thing I already had dinner

it was hot out on the night air

sultry September as I sat in the window...
