impotent

to write
is to cast different bait
into the same unstocked pond
again and again and again and again
with hopes to pull up some new thing
some great unknown monstrous beast
to fight and struggle upon one’s shore

and kill it

that it may be mounted on the wall
for all to see with awe and admiration
at the prowess of the great hunter
whose trophies hide an impotent heart
