>’we are just like fish’ writer’s island #21 fisherman

It is the heart of man:
To find souls in ponds
without fins or gills, that can breathe
in confined spaces.
Or is it the heart of man:
To seek amphibians walking
on crutches because their legs don’t work.
What happened to the liquid surrounding them?
The heart and soul of man
as you throw me a line, I try to catch it.
