A Poem by Robert Halleck


Their fishbowls had
no curtains.  Gazing
at each other across
a quiet street they
could wave and smile.
The day came when a
hand gestured to the entrance.
It was too much to
resist and the fishbowl
across the way had curtains.

Robert Halleck is a hospice volunteer and retired banker who has published two collections of poetry.  His latest chapbook is available on Amazon.  In recent years his poems have appeared in places such as, The Camel Saloon, Scapegoat Review, Jellyfish Whispers, and the San Diego Poetry Anthologies for 2014 and 2015.
