Dandelion (for Keegan)

I dropped the dandelion
you picked for me into an ocean
sized vase on my desk
after cupping it, protective
gentle in my palm from car
to office

here, under fluorescent lighting
it no longer looks like butter
near my skin but at least it swims
from coast to coast
its muted yellow burst imitating
sail as the warm
recirculated winds blow
