dolphin eyes, i owe you my life. i filled a thermos up with turpentine. my super duper sleep inducer. my extra- strength pain reducer. and if you hadn't come around i'd have made it underground. but with dolphin eyes and a sigh that smiles, you turned the jet plane around three thousand miles. our younger days you'd come crawling to my crib to find your mother's name scratched into my wrist. and if you hadn't come around i'd have scratched all the life out. dolphin eyes dolphin eyes the only boy who who will ever save me has a space cadet sister who sometimes barely even flies. and has dolphin eyes. the neighborhood kids watched as you and i built a fortress of leaves, trees and sky. and when the sunset cast its colors on across the back yard and the front lawn we made an effigy of light and were martyrs to the night. and you're my dolphin eyes.
