The Only Raincoat I ever Wore Was Yellow…

The Only Raincoat I ever Wore Was Yellow…

A Golden Shovel of Ocean Vuong’s Toy Boat


The only raincoat I ever wore was yellow,
just like yours, Dad. The rain whipping against my plastic
back; world enveloped by a curtain of misty childhood & pixelated fades to black.
For just a second I could pretend we were sailors somewhere far from here.
