Swim Call

find your boyhood

watering hole

string a line

on an old cane pole

no need for bait

just the heat of the wait

cast and reel

cast and reel

exuberant spree

of the feathered free

nature’s soul

knows what you need

from my abundance

fill and feed

release the hound

from his fettered leash
