I took a trip fishing with my dad in his boat
In the cool of October
Packed up all our things and sailed off into the morn
While my mother watched and waved
We cast out deep in the middle of the pond
Couldn’t snag a single bite
But all around us were dead carp, floating and swollen
With our nets we hauled them in

They ruptured and thanked us for being so kind
We shuddered in the breeze and the water poured in
And brought us down into the pond
The fish were gone

We swam to the shore and looked to the sky
And didn’t see a thing
Except our own reflections, crying,
And wondering why we had ever come at all
