The Kitten's Contrition

The shiny, yellow, and very
fish swimming
in the bowl on your
kitchen table
was not nearly as succulent as the
large, pale, and
fish that you keep in the bowl
in your refrigerator.

Forgive me,
I now know the distinction
the two,
and I recall
how much pleasure it gave you,
but regardless,
the stationary, fish-shaped
pellets without water
in my bowl
simply won't do.
