ode to jacques cousteau (poem)

it's hard to imagine
how we survived the dark days
before the internet.
but we had jacques cousteau

who brought us, just children,
with him on his adventures

who spoke english to us
though it clearly tortured his throat.

jacques cousteau was my pied piper.

i am sinking with him
down & down & down
into a dark world
where we will shine our lights.
