Twilight swims so slowly that I do not notice his progress
until I am surprised to see him on the other side.

Periwinkle and lavender angel-wings,
and teenage face glitter perfectly applied around those black eyes:
He is the look of sunset and dusk.

The reflection in the glass seizes his attention—
every microscale is fully extended, vibrating…
This great and powerful Siamese Fighting Fish
is about to attack himself,
and win an easy victory.
