earthandblood: (coffee black and egg white)
Lying in this too-small bath,
long legs pushed arrow straight by feet again the porcelain,
I test the buoyancy of my hand
and watch it bob along the surface,
pulling it down into something more dense,
the lack of me surrounded.

White bath bubbles (pretend it's sea foam),
once billowing crests now dissolving,
glide along the curve and jut of my hip
I touch the water with a finger
and surface tension brings into contact
something that is hardly there at all
and someone who is hardly here
at all.
