MyFishermen (for Cookie)

I don’t rely

On inspiration but

Rather upon others

There are and

Have been in

My life a

Very few that

Like a fisherman

Reeling in a

Swordfish allowing it

To struggle and

Fight trying to

Flee and eventually

Caught pull the

Words from me

Like that hook

That I took

In order for

Me to be

And they being

Who they are

Resulting in these

Things called poetry

It is they

That make me

And not me

That make them
