bubble bath chapters


I sink into the foam
calling ‘no’ from the abyss
I see your all day eyes thinking

not ‘forever,’ but ‘how long’ ?
your voice rubs my ears
like a tight shoe but

you and I, forever
the universe, in the dark;
warm wool falling from your mouth,

As I move my head my hair
fans out seaweed slow
I’m so dumb and
coming to the surface
the water films my skin like
I’m just another bubble
waiting to be burst.
