Dear Editors,

Winter on the open seas is a grueling affair. Sometimes, the nets I haul up have turned to ice. I know this because the fish have begun to talk again. They say it was so cold inside the sea that even whales began to say strange things. I am always keeping an open ear to these fish. After many days, their lips start flowing with all kinds of delicacies. I keep some and throw the others back into the sea.

Thanks for considering my work.
