Fish Hook

This entry is part 25 of 34 in the series Small World


Shrink an arrow
bend it back upon itself

strip it of feathers
give it a lead sinker & a cork

& a small steel eye
to aid its introspection

let the quarry do
all the travelling

drawn by flash or flicker
lure or wriggling bait

let it exhaust itself against
this irrevocable stillness
