Pull the strings and set the paper
disk into rapid rotation— so the fish

leaps into the bowl, the bird
grabs the fish with its feet

and flies around and around
forever. The eye and the brain

hold on to the vision even after
it has disappeared from view,

the same way your image keeps
flickering behind my eyes.
