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.
