Book Synopsis

A poetry chapbook about goldfish. It was the most exciting thing to purchase a goldfish from the dime store, as a child. Do you remember your goldfish?

Black Gold

What a happy camper
Black Gold
The fish with big eyes
Like he is gulping dog biscuits
In a world all his own
Thick and padded
From the Carp family probably
Eyes like telescopes
Looking for love
Looking for love
In a watery habitat
That we want to control
And the snail sings her song
Riding the glass proudly
Soothing herself
Lustfully rubbing the glass
Like she is putting on a show
In competition with Black Gold
But we all win here
We all win
Nobody is left out in the rain
Black Gold
And lady snail
We all can get along
