IA: “My Father Remembers Blue Zebra” — Judy Halebsky

He remembers that he lost his wallet

he knows about the rainshadow
and the string of islands off the coast of Vancouver

ishot-9
oboeru                      to remember
also means to learn

I try to keep track of what he put where
the small green car we called Cricket
the second time he got drafted
and Aunt Nina’s husband, he’s a nice guy but he’s a fascist

he’s asking me again
where do you live
oh, you’re in school, what do you study

how far off coast do you have to go
to be sheltered from the rain

that’s wonderful Dad says, that’s wonderful
