104°


first a foot
and then a leg
as the entire body
slides into hot silk
becoming immured
in lavender~eucalyptus 
steam

muscles melt
bones lengthen
and water sprites 
in the guise of bubbles
run a languid race
across a bent knee
and a shoulder's curve

above it all
a pergola of steam
lit with a backdrop
of moon and stars
and clouds navigating
an endless sea of midnight blue

a sip of Sambucca
and it's nirvana
at 104°

  2. Feels and looks like a Marathon: full of pleasure and colours. Exactly what you feel when you do acttivities related to the body and the blood.
    Thanks for all your words today and for ever.
