Poem #24 from The Book of Evenings

Back to: The Book of Evenings – Introduction

settle down honey
we haven’t even started yet
you don’t want to fly
before we leave the ground
now do you

why don’t you just
hop in to the shower for me
like a love
while I fix some pillows
and a towel
my special oils
and essential equipment
or is that the other way around

you’ll like some of these

are you watching me
from in there
take a look at this

nice huh

now come on out
dry yourself off

lie down on your back a moment
while I take a little look at you

now I’ll just slip this on for you
hmmm you like that don’t you
I can tell


what would you like to do
to get us started

what would you like hon
no rush
we’ve got
a whole hour
