For Sunday Whirl #503

The Men Chasing Cod

All those fishing boats offshore, 
they’re moving paragraphs
shifting on the horizon.
Nets out. Time idles.
God’s odds for a bounty.
And then the nets tangle.
Grounded on some
parenthetical, Captain says.
      (he likes that word – not sure of its meaning though)
And his anger turns wicked thunder,
and it rains down on us.
The catch is lost.
