Dixie calls the dolphins with Angel

I thought about the dolphins
Dixie said she'd called them from the pier
and while apart, we're always near
and so her Angel sister wins

They both visit the sea, completing a spell across both coasts.
Dixie led us to think ahead, but surely when we got to the sea
we were going to do it: call the dolphins. Oh, not to ask them to come to us,
though she was at a good place to host them...just to let them know we were here.

And I thought about the whales, too, having seen their spouts and great backs,
as well as the dolphins and seals, and stood for a moment on the beach just pondering them, alive out there.

But what I thought was a way to touch the creature beyond with my awareness, I learned that was only one part, a more surface wave of a deeper body's existence.

The sisters can never truly be separated. Angel called in the west, Dixie called in the east, "dolphins...dolll--phins...dolphins" It was really something funny and fun to Angel, whose real reason to do it all was to celebrate her sister.

I was just a silly man imagining the minds of dolphins, following along.
