Justifiable Homicide

Backwater

Turbid water:

frogspawn and dead mite,

leaf and leaf mould,

moulder in water,

and smoulder in fire.

 

In the watersmoke,

a quick refraction

moonlit silhouette,

 

stick strike and flick,

a stunned roach lands

soon dead:

Stone dead.

My first and only fish.

 

March home,

shirt stuffed

with bluff pride,

a natural born

roach killer.
