Baffling

In the dregs of August
we can only ask:
what is the fate of the porpoise?

We need it
and love it
as it lurks in its hot tub
but we don’t understand
why it has made
the choices it has made

Cherish and nurture the porpoise
the wonderful porpoise
with cereal breath
and a five-o’clock shadow

The porch you get
is never
the porch you want
