Fishbowl, By Brian37 (AKA Brian James Rational Poet on FB/META and @Brianrrs37 on Twitter)

If it be my name
Fall off many a tongue
To become a life
No longer my own

I would wish this
To be after my death
Emily is spot on
To be nobody

My preference
Of frogs in bogs
Goldfish too

All the day through
Shadows everywhere
Following you
It will not do

Emily Dickinson
I’m with you
Banish me too
From the fishbowl’s stew.

An ode poem to Emily Dickinson’s “I’m Nobody, Who Are You?”

    • Kelly is still having a prob with the litterbox but using it more often than no, so that is something. But they are both fun and lovable and healthy.

      Emily Dickenson is extremely famous among poets in America. I haven’t read that much of her’s myself. But that one poem “I’m Nobody, Who Are You” really stuck with me.
