Slosh This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Strange way
that things can shift
like a grand whomping
slosh in a jerked fish tank.

The way the fish
will cluster together at the sides,
irises spinning frantically
in their mammoth sockets.

And in that cluster
an unspoken sense
of unbreakable unity in the face
of that grand whomping slosh.

A truly amazing poem, true to what you said it was about.  I liked your use of symbolism and the fact there was an ambiguous plotline in the poem
