To understand the smile

of the dolphin

you´ve got to know

a manta ray

and the lash of its tail

that goes straight

to your heart -

like the knife opening

the farewell note

of your one and only.

You´ve got to see the sharks

in the bay here too

and feel the marks

they leave on your fins

like badges of courage

you never wanted

and wouldn´t kill for -

making you

a little different

from all the rest.
