2.1446 : 4/18/09 : Silver Fish

You better be ready to
be quick with your true wish
tonight you’re going to hook that silver fish
out of the stream that flows
in every neighborhood on earth
mostly live in pipes around these parts
think on that shame for what it’s worth
but in a dream my hooks are sharp
and silver plated steel
I drop it without bait or bobbin
play it just by feel
knowing I’ll feel a touch
and knowing what that touch will be
I’ll land my little silver fish and for its promise
gladly set it free
