Goldfish

No one remembers the names of the goldfish
We buried in the backyard, but
In the summer, when I push the mower around
The smooth circle of river stones where they lie,
I remember the cool puddle of our shadows,
How my son and I held hands as we walked inside,
How after our moment of silence, no one said anything.
