Body Piercing
by Pete Lee
He thought he'd fooled her
with his big rubber worm.

She almost broke his rod
when he hauled her out.

She had no intention
of letting him mount her,

breathed perfectly well
out of water, fished

around in his tackle
box for some pliers,

and with one quick
snip, leapt right back

in . . . proudly sporting
hook, line, and sinker.
