Aquarium

play of light on submerged rock surface.
the air damp, cold:
we swim through it as a school,
stopping and darting at flickers of light,
eddies of crowd-current.

from a rock perch the otter looks up
lazily, notices its audience for the first time.
the paw comes up, gets licked,
returns.
he goes back to his bored routine:
waits for the bluejeaned man to bring the feed.
