In you I discover the sea, am lost in waters,
Smelling the bitter brine that floods from my cock,
The sharp salt exfoliates of our Maker
That shiver hoarsely in the sweat of our fuck.
With you, I grab at the reeling gunwales
And almost fall overboard each day;
Every night, biting smiles from the dark, we assail
Each other with our shark-bodies–saw and sway!
Below you, I am drowning. My hands go wide
As I look up, loving the sky’s last uncertain bright
As the green water’s weight breaks me inside.
There’s only you at the surface, only you in the light.
Let me live this adventure, dear woman,
In your body, by your side, as a man.
