I have tried every word I know
in every possible sequence
to explain to you
who it is I think I am, and why
the ocean between us keeps getting wider,
the waves more violent.
You look at my face, my breasts
"But I miss you." You say "But I want you."
"Show me how much," I say. "Jump!" I say "Swim!"
but you are still, just staring at me
with eyes the colour of the sea.
You stretch your arms wide
like a child asking to be lifted
