in the garden pond
a thousand golden fishes
flirting with the sun

splashed across page one
of this morning’s newspaper—
goldfish invasion

an absurd story
above the fold on page one—
yellowed newspaper

she stifles a groan
reading her granddad’s obit—
an old newspaper
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
weak old newspaper
crumbling to dust in her hands—
the same old story
