Nettwork

a web of sinew

cast astray

into the sea of bounty

thus, that which constricts

and contains

does not restrict

but retains

and drifts downwards

to the depths

until in silence the sinew bulges

and the brine is lodged within

the mesh congeals

around its catch

and is hauled from

the obscure unknown

to the translucent confines

which empties  and examines

the catch

and divides the gifts received

and throws the sinew out

once again
