I killed the fish

sunk to the bottom of the pitcher,

impatient for me to clean the small tank.

I killed the fish

a small daily burden

Not appreciating her life.

I killed the fish

looking away while the toilet flushed

an ending lacking dignity.

I killed the fish

without a clue of what I did.

Endings are like that.
