Slippery When We

Up here
Circling around
My nose pushes through the clouds

Down a way
You are living
Day to night can't stop the simple rush

Of your toes in the bathtub
Peeking past the edge
Of a second too short
You relax

And feel as I do
Bowing through mists that caress
My body diving toward
Your fingers

To keep your clenched eyes
From letting go
Of the blowdryer
That would
Make you
Feel live
