Trout fishing in Kilkenny

Trout fishing in Kilkenny

Fished for trout
      that summer’s day
shallow stream
      huddle of shadows
just below the surface
      teasing us
who had nothing
      but feathered flies
to entice them
      onto the hook

. . .and so I write it
      word by word
line by line
      sifting through the past
what drew her close
      what allowed her
to slip away
       a hunger to touch
to taste that flesh
            again
