By Bear

Her voice dives across the pool deck
Deking around the men’s braggadoccio to strum my ears
Women so sunburn beautiful are meant to be size six or less, I thought
With husband trailing behind like a quacking pulltoy
Every motion crane-smooth she shucks her loose tunic and shorts
I hear a salesgirl tell her, covers a multitude of sins
There is disgust from the assembled boys for her full thighs
Gravity-bound breasts and childbirth hips
Sly cuts about hard teenagers, not a ripple when they rut
I would like to rock her cervix with my knuckles
And enjoy remaking the bed afterwards
