Poem of the month
Full creel at sunset
He circles the campfire, giddy,
waves a string of dead fish,
fails to question why
every current centers, pools.
She creeps off, listens to sparks
from the darkest shadows,
watches embers go black, freeze.
After a time he comes to her,
finds her gasping, as if in his creel.
She sees herself bleeding deep.
