Minnow Fishing on a Grassy Sidewalk Island

Underwater sidewalks rise, grow into fishing islands where girls net minnows in the park. In their bucket, tiny fish wriggle through dead grass, dirt. One girl says she saw a huge fish swim across a nearby field — two feet long, an ugly bottom feeder. A canoe would be fun, too, she says, if the channel flow was not so strong, the water cold, the current to the bridge so treacherous.
