the imagery in this poem is just amazing.

I love the watery / child-like images, of swimming and bobbing about, hugging, ships... water babies!

"I fell asleep in the bath and you ducked your hands underneath me -

a touch like barnacles hugging a ship – and clotted

your green leathery seaweed pods over my skin

until I dissolved like salt in your arms."


also love; Clementine sky/ burning orange ocean.

it works because you stick to a few images/ colours, and expand on them throughout. not overcrowding at all... in fact, perfect,

"I fell asleep in the bath." Powerful imagery.
