‘A Proper Poem’ and other poems by Abigail Dufresne


Big Brother Is Watching.

I wanted to push off into the crashing,
Batter against bridges
Be swept away by currents
You preferred the shore
No sharks on shore
No undertows to rip away your red tide sister
I wasn’t allowed to kayak without you,
And you weren’t willing to hold all my fire
Even with all that water, my flames are still reckless
We were both cradled by waves,
Rocked by the sound of seagulls,
Ate our sandwiches out of plastic buckets
Last month I fumbled every fiery part of me into the open mouth of a kayak for the first time in years,
Held the paddle in both hands, still pretending like I know what I’m doing,
Each stroke splatters lake water onto my face, it gets into my mouth, I am smiling so big
You own a kayak of your own now,
