The Dance


Desiree and Jillian were camped out on Echo Lake 
sunshine, fish breaking, what a day

Desiree was using a new daredevil 
lure but she couldn’t keep them hooked
she switched to Jillian’s trusty 
jitterbug and let fly


Agnes Bloom was a bright
reflection of Desiree’s breezy childhood
during daylight she wandered the lake 
in her polka dot boots
south of Signal Island Agnes drew near as a water 
lilly swayed in the shallows
calm water swirled as a handsome 
trout circled the graceful blossom


Jesus Christ 
this trout is pulling me out
feed him more line Desiree
reel the bastard in

twenty minutes later Desiree carried him off


dear god

what a fish
