Sometimes certain rare individuals come into our lives when we are ready to receive them. Thanks be I was ready to be with Jack Gilbert, beginning in 1994, when mutual friends brought him to Hartford, and off and on for ensuing years, for poetry workshops and readings, mentoring, visits, walks. He and his three mutual friends, gave me so much that became a part of me, my voice and pace. – Donna Fleischer at word pond

He Let Go, by Donna Fleischer / contemporary haibun online

Donna Fleischer

He Let Go

They were friends for years until the day he flung his pole and tackle at her and walked away.

She’d brush past the brightly feathered lure, mouth closed tightly, gills barely closing, opening, his cast too shallow.

He retreats to a room where the little boy slides out of the man who sits at a desk and whittles poems. A desk of miniature cast iron warriors paint worn off, small notebooks, pocket knives, Pez Batman, toys, tricks against loneliness.

And male and female Siamese fighting fish, each in a glass bowl the size of a jar, fanning up for food flakes, down to sleep. He’d re-stock with new fake castles, plastic ornaments, a collapsed Doric column. The fish swim silently round and round.
