Why Hollis Won’t Get another Goldfish


Because, dear Hollis, people who glass up emotion into cynicism prefer goldfish.

Goldfish are easy to take care of. Even druggies can take care of goldfish.

Goldfish are boring.

If they were free to do as they pleased, they would be so huge and slow they’d have to be buried in pianos like Elvis.

If they were free to do as they pleased, they’d be called CARP, and CARP is just an anagram for CRAP.

Dante wrote of their poor, passionless loop looping around forever behind that watery glass.

Their pirate ships, their sunken treasure, their submarines and their glittery worlds – and even their fire – are all fake.

Goldfish are very, very bad role models.

  1. Brilliant and bare. Just a magnificent piece. The world should sit up and take notice of your simply eloquent genius.
