Both Wiser

“…ruminating on his dismal fate and the manifold perfections of Dolly Varden.”
-Charles Dickens, Barnaby Rudge

Twenty two inches of furious silver torpedo bulldogging and thrashing in the fog and in the line backing at night: you lose one early on, you don’t let it happen again.

She sinks into the darkwater; you walk into the fog.

Neither of you will ever let it happen again.

  4. “She sinks into the darkwater; you walk into the fog.”

    I could read that sentence all day and not tire of it.
