down here by the river
i am still not fully at peace
i wonder if someone saw me come down here and will follow to accost me

the fear is a tiny thing swimming in my belly

so i continue to cast
not merely to catch something
but simply to breathe
and to lay the line just so among the still places between the rapids

sometimes it is all i can do to keep casting
but that is enough

to my left is the traffic
to my right the waterfall
here i am in between
trying to make sense of it all
