Woman of Water

For Frank

If you were my muse

I’d be in trouble

I just want to tease you

Stroke your cheek, scratch your stubble

Make fun of your haircut

‘Til your chin wants to double.

 

It’s your dimples I’m seeking,

I must make you smile

I want to fall in them

And swim for a mile.

 

The breast stroke, the back stroke

The butterfly, and free

As a mermaid I’ll kiss you

I’m lost in your sea.

 

It happened so fast

I worry it’s lust

Is the fire of desire

A medium I wonder

This woman of water

Can trust?
