Thor, the Norse God of Thunder, had a hammer named Mjölnir. Mjölnir was considered a fierce weapon that could level mountains and summon lightning with every blow. In this poetry blog, every Thursday, (Thor’s Day), Mjölnir will forge only song - sing of the mysteries and beauties of the world.

Bought a goldfish
and a bowl.
Carried carefully
the orange body home
in the plastic bag
ballooning with water.
Filled the bowl
from the faucet.
Opened the bag.
Poured the fish in.
Bent down.
Looked in.
Tapped the glass.
Craving contact. 
Such a strange way
to go about it.
Who is at the glass:
me or mystery?
Who is in the bowl:
 me or mystery?
