A Geographical Blemish


On her face she had a red stain

the shape of Australia on a map

with jagged coast line

and the head of a dolphin sprouting in the southwest,

I drifted for a time

locating Perth

the “City of Light”

on my way to feed the bottlenose dolphins in Monkey Mia,

she suddenly turned to face me head on

revealing a smile

radiant and assured

“Can I help you?”

we started to talk

and Australia shriveled and fell away

until I saw nothing of it at all.
