The Prize You Seek

Dragnetting with the spoken word,

trying to trap what you can’t see

 

Unbaited, your net cast far and wide,

in a dark and foreign sea

 

Over and over, you pull in your lines,

with nothing again to show

 

The prize you seek, swimming wild and free

—at a depth you’ll never know

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: February, 2017)
