fish & cigarettes

2:30 a.m.
the small boat is slowly moving into the dark void.
the sea is calm. fortunately.
cigarettes.
a long band of tied nets disapears in the black water.
full moon. almost like daylight.
waiting.
coffee.
cigarettes.
sunrise.
warmness.
where is the red canister that marks the end of the net?
fishes gasping for breath. not possible on deck.
suddenly hustle and bustle.
the octopus fights for his life, even after the knife pierced his brain.
more fish flounder in thin mesh.
cigarettes.
the boat cuts the deep blue water on its way back home.
seabirds.
more cigarettes.
10 a.m.
back on land.
only one box.
but the octopus has saved the day.
