He is a Fisherman     


He is a fisherman,

shrewd and seasoned

He has a line

with a workable bait,

the bait of love

rich with ostentatious gesticulations

and highly appealing flirtations

He uses it to catch the fish

that falls easy prey

to the jazzy beauty and

vitality of the bait

He, then, greedily gulps down the flesh of the fish


Leaving the skeleton alone,

the fisherman goes in search of another fish,

pretty with iridescent fangs.
