She followed me downward,
  her lips were on fire

From the depths of her lake,
  every wish she inspired

Water everywhere,
  lily pads on end

A frog left unkissed,
  the price of pretend

She looked at me sadly,
  the bottom came soon

My arms reached out madly,
  to drown or to swoon

Her voice calling gently,
  my spirit renamed

As my soul she undressed,
 —inside her again

(Villanova Pennsylvania: August, 2017)
