3030 Poetry Challenge Day 27

Prompt for today is: Three new fish

Compromise

The terms of my lease are firm,
no pets, no sub-lets.
But fish don’t count as animals,
do they?
I place three new fish
in a big glass bowl
and content myself
watching them circle
and pout
instead of running my hand
through thick ginger fur,
or coaxing a timid rodent
to eat from my hand.
