Perca fluviatilis

Steady-turning, tip low,

feel extended through finest lineaments.

My arm’s sweeping twitch-response,

tugging darting replies, unequal to freedom.

Flash of black-barred gold and fiery fin,

within the cloudy flow,

as mounting pressure compels,

into the waiting net.

But not the pan.
