i’m not that good with surprises

i need to know what’s behind the horizon

can i confide in

you for a minute

i’m tryin’ to self-sacrifice to Poseidon

dad’s happy place was an island

he would go fly there when chemo was driving

up through his eyelids

couldn’t envision

that he would die then he did

it’s no wonder i’m whining

over what i don’t expect to climb in my timing
