The Last Time I Saw My Dad in Spirit

Updated: Mar 29, 2021

You’re swimming like a dolphin, like a merman.

Fish white shoulders roil in the rainbow light.

You scud the wavelets, a small craft.

Your laughter froths the ocean until it laughs too,

and you are a god of the sea, at last: your true form.

Suddenly, you evaporate into the mist of Hy Brasil.

This is the last time I ken your spirit skin

in the shape of my dad. It was just like the algebra

your tried to speak with me, but this time the X

would not be found.
