In the Aquarium by Dunya Mikhail


In the Aquarium

A fish
meets another fish
and lays eggs.
As its fins signal to the seaweed
its colors come out
one after the other.
Its bubbles are words
meant for no one.
The world rises and falls
each day
through the eyes of a fish.

(Translated by Kareem James Abi-Zeid)
