Fish Window Number Five

Fish Window Number Five

Blazing acrobats
Surge then glide, suspend motion,
Hypnotize\A family gathered in
Window number five.

Remember public
Outings, camping out for seats
In crowds of loud fanatics
Before diseases?

Cramped in bubbled rooms
Behind plexiglass, watching
Does not a circus make, Dave
Is two. He won’t get

A chance to razz a
Pitcher, or scream like a
With the crowd when a band plays
Songs that make him cry.
