Inside the wail

 The other "wail" in the P. series...

Inside the wail:

Geppetto waited for God’s breath
To set him free
Fish memories of the tree
He carved into his son
And listened to the waves
Beat against the Leviathan’s breast.

When Pinnochio arrived
With breakfast
The old man was crest-fallen
God would never save
What the fairy had created.
