First Line: Here we have thirst
Last Line: Whose scales turn aside the sun's sword by their polish.
Subject(s): Bottles; Fish & Fishing; Anglers


Here we have thirst
and patience, from the first,
and art, as in a wave held up for us to see
in its essential perpendicularity;

not brittle but
intense -- the spectrum, that
spectacular and nimble animal the fish,
whose scales turn aside the sun's sword by their polish.
