Swimming

October 15, 2014 § 2 Comments

Outside, the very image of
the word sweltering
scorched earth; no rain for months
and the dry grass glints, like
razorblades. That peculiar metallic
twang, unmistakeable.
The swimming pool another
world of deep-space-blue
positively planetary, star-sparks cast
from each wave-peak, we are
little planets in orbit,
slick interstellar fish
rollicking in luminescent liquid.
He moulds my limbs
just so!
“Take a deep breath.”
Water everywhere; top and bottom
hopelessly confused. Lost
between sky and earth I
twist frantically emerge
gasping.
He laughs, and I watch
as he does somersault after
somersault
in graceful slow motion
glorying in the chaos.

Bloodbond

Kiss me, let
the blood from my torn
and ragged
lips
seal our sacred pact.
