Virtual Aquarium

Could a clownfish know they’ve been 3-d rendered?
Their movements chalked up to variable rates –
a turn here, a bob-dance twice per day,
nuzzling in a polygonal anemone on demand.
Could they dream of themself –
not hunting for food,
nor suffering predation,
a version that will outlast them,
forever dancing,
long after their eyes have been devoured
and their flesh returned to the sea?
