Fishing from the Bridge

Away from the house,
fast and far,
fishing pole resting on Huffy handlebars,
down the prom to 12th avenue

each block further away from angry voices,
turning right and that much
closer to the bridge
that crossed the Necanicum

closer to snagging a bullhead
to cut up for bait,
to use to catch a sea-run cutthroat
salt water trout

if the tide was coming in
