Great Regulars: Poet Mekeel McBride, from Kittery, writes:

"I told a friend that my goldfish had died. He scoffed, said, 'I'm a journalist. I deal with things that really matter.' I felt ashamed for even mentioning it but later, this poem taught me what really does matter and why."

Edited and Introduced by Wesley McNair, Maine poet laureate.
