Remember when your whole family went to Hawaii.
You asked nicely if I could come as your friend.
The sky was dark and the rocks were jagged as knives.
You said we should give scuba diving a try.

On our first dive I was
Bored until we saw a
School of turtles swimming
Right by us.

I touched one’s shell to tell him hello,
He said tell me something that I don’t know.

You shared a room with your sister and her best friend.
I shared one with your seven-year-old brother, Glen.
We snuck out to meet up under the moonlight.
By the mango tree I learned you could cry.

You said maybe if we
Went under the water
Life would stop above
To let us swim.

I touched your face just to say time won’t slow.
You said tell me something that I don’t know.

Where was I when you learned you could breathe underwater?

Where do I find you to take you back up to the surface?
