Opened ended letter to a lobsterman

Dear lonely sir, 

How do we square 
with the fact 
that those knots and nets
you leave in the harbor 
will never hold me?

Brief piece written for the first Camera Flash challenge over at real toads. 


  1. There are those who cannot be caught and those who never make a catch. Maybe we need to let our loved one lose.

  2. Ah, Izy.. I always find enormous enjoyment in your work. I love how you captured the essence of the "flash" here, in your succinct rhetorical question.

  3. What I want to know is why sir is lonely, Izy. Is it because he can't catch anyone in his knots and nets?

  4. I love your take on the prompt! The rhetorical question works well here and causes one to ponder :)
