What does the koi fish know about humans? Does it wonder what the faces are that peer at it above the pond through an obscure lens?
Or is it only thinking of the next moment when it will be fed? Does it receive food and wonder from where it came or instead think “I acquired this for myself”?
Does it wait impatiently, obsessively focused on the next moment when it will grasp with open mouth the next bite, the fulfillment of neverending desire, never fulfilled?
Does it want more?
Do you stop to breathe in the present moment? Do you wonder at what reaches down from above to feed you? Or does food appear and you think only “I have acquired this for myself”?
Are you a koi fish?
