The Goldfish is a sumptuous, surreal exploration of femininity. The poet inhabits the voice of a goldfish through a series of linguistically experimental poems which plunge us into the glass bowl and invite us to gaze out.

An extract from 'How to Take Care of a Goldfish':

Fresh air 
Fresh water
Fresh mood everyday 

Being goldfish means being able to forget anything bitter or joyful in two minutes 

The advantage of being goldfish is having a big world, in a small space 

Being goldfish means being kind to all living things 

Being joyful 
Being accepting 

Being goldfish is to swim fast and faster everyday | to build a memoire 
to swim fast and faster everyday | and not going anywhere
