March 2019 | Sanjena Sathian, “Catfishing in America”

“Two hours later, I was at home cooking a whole-wheat low-sodium spaghetti Bolognese. The sauce flecked out of the pot onto my too-white tile. I took a rag to it, dabbed like I was mopping up a sliver of blood from a paper cut, and thought about how soon I’d be feeding dead bait to soon-to-be dead catfish and then eating that catfish as a soon-to-be-dead human myself. I’d say to the catfish, One day the universe will eat me, too. That seemed like a big relief.”
