pimp

red-light

come to the river,
let its rhythm
rock you.
let it leak
and drown you kindly

liquid will fill its vessel;
become
shapes.
become shallow,
become trench deep,
bottomless.

in the river,
gills and goggles –
gimmicks.

grow,
glow –
that’s your hair
that floats
like plants amid the blue.

those are your toes,
your arm hair
that waves like grassy dunes
in the afternoon,
white as wax.

drift,
and deepen.
silver shimmers
scurry above –
shun them,
sugar.
