Lying

Self portait Masaccio, 1420

[Passionflower
Piet Mondrian, 1908]

Lying

Lying,

or seeming

to be

lying

your body

featureless

as is mine.

isolated bodies,

oil,

water

beginning to fumble.

Now we shake.

Oil separates

in water,

globules

bobbing

then collective

to the top,

globing to the top

globing

and drops lest

lying close

as oil

and water are

Your voice ripples through.

I’m not breathing very

well.
