walking home
with two perch
on a stringer,
I wish I’d
released them
instead

watched them
slip back
to that sweet spot
in the creek
where the water’s
dark and deep
and always
churning

’cause cleaning
the bastards
is a real pain
in the ass

particularly
when your
head’s swimming
from sipping
warm beer
and hootch
all day

and home
is still
two miles
away

and your feet
keep going
sideways
