Every Christmas, Tio Harold always asks for a dolphin calendar, and my mom makes sure that every year, he gets one. He has a strong fascination for dolphins and is obsessed with watching shows on the discovery channel and animal planet.


It’s that time of year again
All the presents are under the tree
All the gifts are wrapped again
as you’re muttering patiently,
“All I want’s a calendar,
A dolphin calendar just for me.”

All year you watch Animal Planet
or the Discovery Channel.
You learn about the aquatic life.
Do you think about how it feels
to spend hours submerged
beneath the surface with no signs of drowning?

You’ll say in your mind
The days are merging seamlessly
You feel stuck in time again
How can clocks tick listlessly?
The arms are still and silent.

It must feel nice to be just like a
dolphin jumping high above the sea
that’s not you, it can be
That’s not you but boy, it can be.
