For I Have Become Murky

Poem By RIC BASTASA

i am the river beside you and you are the woman
wanting to go naked and take a bath in my mouth

while wading you think of the calmness of the
a pond, some petals of roses, air showered with
white magnolias,

i am the river beside you and my ripples are tongues.
i move around loving every part of you.

and you tiptoe and wriggle and sing for i am winding
you take the plunge and you search for my heart

the warmth of my floor and the comfort of my banks
the tickles of my fish, the power of my pebbles

you feel that i own you now and you want some more
wanting to stay and savor the embrace of my foams

at noon the sun comes at the height of its brightness
you realize the mistake & you stand and dress yourself
you never want to be a part of me for i have become murky
