Things We Will Forget about Whales by Laura Budofsky Wisniewski

Things We Will Forget about Whales

by Laura Budofsky Wisniewski

(published in Canary, Issue 47, Winter 2019-2020)


How the shy ones sang only in the green lagoons of their birth,

how they swam to the last northern light,

how they spoke in the pang of our language

though they longed for the sounds of each other,

how the mothers lifted the corpses

that we would see their sorrow,

and how at the end

they forgave us

as if we would live together

in a kingdom

of blue kindess,

endless.
