i was eightteen my brother was twenty-one one saturday evening when all the work was done we went down to the river, had some trot lines to run my brother walter had a fight the week before knocked a boy named wilson through the pool hall door they said you don't mess with wilson unless you want a war we put the boat in the water, i made the engine run loaded the lantern against the sinking sun and my brother walter was loading his gun and we went down the river down past the coal docks we wre running our lines heard some drunken boaters racing up behind it was wilson and his cousin, they had trouble on their minds they passed on by us, probably going to tend their pots we headed up the river with the fish we'd caught but before we made the landing, i thought i heard a shot back down the river my brother walter fell over the side i couldn't find him no matter
