the death aquatic: in memoriam, fish

Fish's place of rest.Fish, a six-year Coach House resident, was found floating atop his home. An attempt to call 911 was his last act of public engagement. The police did come to Coach House this morning, but all efforts failed.

Fish was the last of his many goldfish siblings. He will be remembered for his swimming and pugnacious personality. Many felt a deep rapport with his Sisyphean efforts to drag pebbles from one end of his tank to the other, an artistic testament to determination not unlike Christian Bök's Eunoia.

He is survived by his longtime tank companion Zach.

He will be missed.

Fish: Happier days for Fish.
