Fishing

There’s something in the water
Wader, knee-deep
Friend? Or foaming foliage
Aggressive camouflage
Whole species of algae
Wearing microphones
The size of a pin prick?
I’m alert; I’m ready
For a piece of metal
To pierce through me
My initial flinch subsides
A solitary fish swims
Just out of arms reach
Perhaps unaware that its
Existence is in my hands
