Notes on a father iii

my brain runs                              a gasp                                rather you never
around in waves                         you have                            learned how to
want
of noise                                       when you say         when your whole life
deep beneath                             my name                           is drowning
the echo                                      it isn’t                                that each gasp
i hear                                           you never wanted           can
you still                                       me                                      be

          the only world                till you realize          standing on
          you ever knew                 one day                              the shore

the sun has set                          night air                              how

beneath the waves                   you wonder                        to
and in the cold                         did it ever learn                 breath

my brain runs         a gasp                       rather you never
