POEM: capo and the tide

what a difference a letter makes
I thought your Instagram name
had “tilde” at the end
there’s no tilde in your name
no Spanish or Portuguese in your posts
which seem to mostly have flowers
& hammocks & guitars & sideways mountains
then I realized the word was “tide”
so many possibilities!
it can be high or rising or turning
all our boats can lift
or we can be overwhelmed by it or
maybe you just live near the ocean
