Bring Prudence


And also trains

You pull up like a novice,
meet me at the door,
lead me up my stairs,

I take off your jeans.

You don’t tell me
that you made me,
I don’t swing a pillow,
the wreath doesn’t fall, a dog doesn’t bark.

We go camping down to the lake,
you teach me how to swim.
I am clumsy and kissed.
