just outside of your front door

in the pool

just outside of your front door

just past the open door
love is blooming
in the seaside pool
bearded bear envelopes
tattooed and tiny
it’s a scene
more appropriate
in private
yet darling
it’s 72 degrees
in texas
the sun is bright
the sky is clear
and the waves appear murky
through the gate
and i can hear her laugh
i think i heard her mention
this afternoon
her work, his work, their work
live streaming
with fewer clothes
taking requests
from their fans
but for a few hours
the pool
the beach
the early afternoon
yeti cooler
full of silver bullets

i can see only one
