Dead

He lies motionless

On his side
At the bottom of the new bowl
On the new rocks
By the new plant
All of which I bought for him 
Just four days ago
He seemed happy then
Tonight, he was suffering
Obviously
And greatly
I’m thankful he’s free
But I’ll miss him
He was just a fish
But to me
Not “just”
RIP, Alyosha
