Day 18 of 30

JENE’S GIRLS

Jene got three little girls
who look like their daddy
but God already took daddy
back to the lighthouse

so these three little girls
already know what it’s like
to capsize in the blue
out of the blue

found out mommy could
inflate
could become a raft
to get her girls back to shore
to safety

where she teaches them
that the water is
fickle
spastic
uncertain
and mommy as a raft
may not always have air

and even though daddy
is in that lighthouse
shining on
the three of them
Jene teaches
the three of them
to lock arms

tight

and forever
be each other’s
life guards
