on two bridges the nets hung
fish struggled through the coarse fibers
driftwood, kelp, and rot cling to the rope
underneath, there is a quiet swirl
a faint flickering of light from the surface
an occasional flash of untarnished metal
would break the surface if it weren't brighter above
with the call of the birds in the air that snaps
it is so cold, you ache when you breath
