reflections in the tub

your body looked long
all brown & naked & joyous.

you flipped and splished
like a fish in a stream

my soapy hands ran over
your wild arms & swimming legs
the bottoms of your feet &
the bottom of your bottom

i washed your shoulders
your soft belly & chest
your round cheeks
washed all the sticky from your hands,
between each finger


made my constant wish

that gentle touch

only gentle,
welcome touch

would come to
each part of you

I do the exact same thing. Glad it isn't just me.
