standing on the edge of the riverbank
I was looking for a big fish
but it was neither fish nor fowl
which suddenly appeared
all’s fish that comes to the net
I thought
and caught a big fish in a small pond
he drank like a fish
and talked like Pisces do
but fishing for something else than me
he was like a fish out of water
so I let him go
I have other fish to fry, I said,
taking my fishing rod
there are plenty more fish in the sea
I have to go there, I thought
