— “you’re sort of our muse.”

 

water in water,

light in light —

water descend,

water will rise.

 

i lay on the floor,

square cold tile,

water is rising.

 

Am the floor,

sheen on green tile,

water cover me: arms

to arms, cover me —

held in green water.

 

i am light,

but cannot shine —

lips,

skin, all beneath

green glaze,

dim radiance

for your

curious eyes.
