Preparation

                       


To reach into a can of worms feeling for the biggest to thread on the hook.
All done with eyes closed to try to make the time more real
The fish will not be seen until they're caught
and later when I'm older, maybe seven or even nine
I'll  be able to say I can do it with my eyes closed
