Mr. Wisherfish

be kind, be real ‘n
please rewind
the bucking
reel,

scum feeder’s been
sucklin’ hook too long
for missing meal,

pull a sick catfish aboard
and grant him fortune’s
kiss,

then toss him coin-head first
into copper liquor
fountain

tail’s ripping shimmer sway
chased always to
bottoms.
