"Let me be that I am and seek not to alter me,"--Shakespeare


My thoughts echo against

the glass bowl,

my family staring in

at me, watching as I watch

the tiny bubbles

from the treasure chest

pop.

I try to swim up

and get air,

But I am stopped

by the lid,

So I sink

Into

the ground.

A fish swims

by me, brushing my leg

with its slippery fin.

I watch as it bangs

it’s head

Against

the glass

-once, twice, thrice.

I glance out

At my family,

Outside the orb.

Then I start

to sift through

the neon rocks

and try to find the bottom.
