He Folds His Words into Pastry Shells

He folds his words into pastry shells
and bakes them at 98.6
for as long as it takes to type these words
then he reads these words
and makes changes until
just maybe
for a moment
you can see the line in the water
and the float
it disappears
a strike!
It’s gone
and you grab the pole
and yank
and just maybe
for a moment
you remember.
