report 1

girl holding out a net
woman putting things in, saying
potatofish
carrotfish
potatofish

I went and bought a packet of chips
and now i'm eating them, thinking:
potatofish
winefish
potatofish

report 2

Conversation with Dana
Rungholt the disappearing
island,
Wells underwater
Scales on your hands
and lures,
all those man-hours spent anticipating
the desires of fish

report 3

Little jelly on the surface
Ah
You make me nervous

Pause

the keeper on her rounds
taps my glass
tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap

Let me just take a sip of water
