caught stealing (in twenty-twenty)

Take me across the water ’cause I need some place to hide
                                                                — Ken Hensley

we’re catching fish
upstream from the lock & dam

catch & release catch & release
oh here’s a keeper bluegill
straight out of the mississippi

we understand the newly formed
‘limit police’ are out in full force
some on the water &
others on foot
allegedly deputized by
the president of the united states

october two thousand twenty-two
