Words as Lures

He has a crafty way
of choosing just the right ones,
and with finesse and skill,
casts them out
then
patiently, patiently
lays in wait
before sensing a bite
and slowly,
slowly
reeling in.

consumes colourful adjectives,
and is a sucker for
juicy tidbits
and flattery,
bobbing and
flitting
hither and thither
until
snagged
by the perfect line.
