From words you can’t explain
Your reckless father
Alone by
The southern waters
Two tongues tied
Two distant skies
Flecked with white

I heard
Two months he’d been in bed
Beyond the
Brittle urban
Ear; feeds
A balmy stifled
Air; bleeds
A radio
Humming fuzz

Girl, you gave me your hand
I know you never had
Someone to love you as I have

When he sets sail
From Port Cheniere
To endless deeps
The scuttle creeps

A nameless song
Of Pontellier
Upon his lips
