Hero of Half Here and Half There

You tall toothy
Once ungainly hero of half-here and half-there
I never knew where you went before
There was a hole under the house. "Do you live there?"
Invisible velcro latched me to your size 13's
Grubby fingers engulfed by dinner plates
Holding me to this earth
A thousand walks on the beach
You berry picking with me in winter
"I told you they were there!"
Your letters were waiting for me when I got back.
Where did I go?
