The North American Wrass

Thaddeus Ziolkowski

         A child requested that I render, using pen and ink,
the likeness of an animal. What kind of animal, I asked.
A fish, replied the child. But when I had reproduced,
in lush detail, the North American Wrass, a shoal-dwelling
specimen, the child quivered like a tuning fork struck an
irregular blow, and did not stop during my entire visit,
which extended itself accordingly.
