Poem: "alien aquarium"

This poem came out of the October 16, 2011 bonus fishbowl.  It was inspired by a prompt from my_partner_doug and then selected as a freebie in the poll.  It follows "Pet Projects" in the Monster House series.  For more about the series, visit the Serial Poetry page.


alien aquarium
-- a waltz wave


blink
watching
blink
monster
under the
bed and
girl
laughing,
looking in
aquarium
bogeyman
jerking
back
startled
by a wink
always
blink
watching
blink
