Step one: my father takes a piece of fish
and hooks it on the line, feeds it to the sea hoping
a twakkie, harder or redroman would bite
as he becomes a piece of poisonous bokkoms
shriveling in the sun feeding the fish themselves, 
trusting they would bite he understands that  fish
eat fish that eat the ocean that eats us, and
while my father tricks the fish to eat themselves

we eat ourselves when we eat the fish.
