A Girl's Legs Stirring The Air


by Jerry Ratch


A girl's legs stirring the air up

behind his back

as he lies between her thighs

 

stirring the air repetitively

like a sea anemone

stirring the water to feed

 

the soul, the hunger

between the legs and arms

for new life, stirring up

 

the salty waters

the currents and the silt

between both worlds

 

which are stirred

to produce the pearl

and the egg

 

The girl's legs stirring up the air

behind him

as though she's treading water

 

desperately trying to get

somewhere with or without him

trying to get back home inside

 

to her own turf and territory

in love or alone, either way

just so she gets there
