The country road we
biked on brought us to our
own fishing bridge --

asphalt later taking the fun
from skidding wheels
on loose rock not many
cars on the road those days
more for the rich folks

and journeys continued
until one of our pals was hit
by one coming like an
eagle focused on his prey.

At the funeral we promised
the next big trout would
be in his honour. And we
did remember to do so.
