Captain Papa

Beach Girls

We didn’t think you’d helm this ship,
     swab the deck,
     hoist the mast.

These children, they were women’s work,
     or so we thought,
     so we thought.

I watch your heart, it swells (and breaks)
     washes up on
     sand crab beach,
     where they,
     with pink buckets,
     wait for you.
