Pike – a short fragment

A fragment is a piece of writing that is normally part of a longer piece.

Pike is a fragment, an incomplete piece of writing which I will incorporate into a sequence – I already have a place for it in mind, matching with “Hare in a Glacial Sequence” and “Horse in Winter”.

Even as a fragment, “Pike” has gone through several revisions, perhaps the most significant being the removal of simile of small fry to raindrops to make a more general metaphor. The word “interface” was also introduced as a substitute for “surface”, to include the reader in the thinking process rather than presenting a rather empty, straight-forward descriptor.
