cryptid in july poetry day 14, your favorite lake/sea monster


a poem about the dolphin man of the euphrates river

i pretended i was
taking a vacation alone
because that’s the easiest way to leave and never come back

when was the last time you crossed a body of water

i used to train dolphin pods
for the bomb-squad
and get high on nitrous

imagine you are in a nature sounds mp3 recording of the euphrates river
except that it’s real
and the soft metals and radiation in the water can hurt you

i am the dolphin-man 

all of my bones
will soon be graced with cancer
