a jerk at end of line one
waiting for jerk at other end

pull your push
in tug of war
wade through water
in search of prey
boots submerged
so much to feel
squish of soggy sole
when walking

of fulton fish market
catch of day
fish and man
residing in same waters
drowning alike
appreciating last
gasping breaths

man will never grow a gill
fish will never know two feet
but they can play
in old man river
childhood game
of cat and mouse

is this not how hunt
was supposed to be?
