Music Lesson

Dad, 

I want to break you out of here—
commandeer the ludicrous 
toddler-pink wheelchair 

and roll you over the salt-sprayed hills
where Camas choirs sing out indigo

hues, beneath your opus scribed
upon the dawning crimson blaze 
you crave . . . like air

each laboured breath  
a decrescendo 
from this eighth-floor window

    Dear Jen, My dad was in poor health for the last several years of his life, and I too used to break him out of his confinments every chance I got. I have so much to tell you. Elaine
