On Hooks

The title, or first line,
The picture, or font,
There must be a drawing in.
Giving the reader
One last breath
Before changing their life
Forever.
Your bait can tell us
Who you’re fishing for,
With words and tags
For which readers hunt.
But the strength and size
Of your glistening hook
Tells us how big
You dare to dream.
