20 noémvrios 2008


small blue dolphin card
found beside the road
nearest the obey store
—seal oil and orange
juice purchased—far
inland near tidehead
of a river it’s not known
that dolphins ever swam

creative child of a tempest
and a fishmonger—far from
tierra del sol     the silk road
the santa fe trail—learning
about le dauphin of France
eldest son of the king the heir
apparent until the monarchy
beheading revolution

in another childhood     flipper
a lively intelligent bottlenose
dolphin living with     assisting
and protecting a park warden
widowed dad and his two sons
was played by a string of females
in drag who had girlfriends and
who even fathered an baby
