Memories of grandpa

t r e f o l o g y

Grandpa always wore an old fishing cap.

I remember it was covered

from brim to brim

with all of these colorful & expensive fishing lures.

There were green ones, blue ones,

yellow ones, red ones …

some shaped like fish,

& a few home-made ones

that didn’t resemble

anything at all.


But grandpa was not a very good fisherman,

and was never known

to have ever caught anything of note.

Except for that one day, though,

so the legend goes,

when, he removed his cap too quickly,

and he caught

an entire human scalp.


Though the force wasn’t with me that afternoon, it did promise to catch up with me later
