Fishless Rivers

Ahmad Nadalian
citizen of Poloor
and its fishless rivers,
carver of the fish
for the Horaz River,
is walking
through the Damavand
filling his basket
with stones.

What he hopes to draw
with his chisel
and hammer
is your attention.

Nadalian returns to the fishless rivers with his carved stones and leaves them where they might be found. It's a kind of treasure hunt. The prizes are stone fish. Real fish cannot be found in many of the polluted and dried-up rivers in the Damavand region by the Caspian Sea.
