ed fishing Oc 
tober in the sedge(s), 
what could have been night
fishing with a dozen eels and coffee
in a can bought a two gallon gas container, sold
 one car. (Alexi's red) truck towed once and one half times
  the distance between Philadelphia, PA and Hagerstown, MD,  
still runs. There are stories within stories, everything is prequel, as
the moment when the connection breaks with the giant red drum on
the other end of the oyster razors was already a grace note on the one  
song which is all once and ever known before, between, after life and death.

Fort fisher park,

Raccoons move into camp first night
Alexi has to fight for bread


Hobie steering broken
Starter feared broken
Paranoia takes hold
truck has to be left on most of the time
Remember: don't turn it off
Remember: left is right and right is left


We meet an Austrian born woman who was a translator during WW2 who's
5 sons live on mars extracting minerals etc.


The locals tell us fishing has been bad.

The End
