The taste of the bathwater was so strong
at first that the forest smelt like green black eyes.

the wine had a red-fruit flavor
and made my lips pout.

I think she was sitting on the bathroom floor,
just to the right of the bathtub,

with her legs crossed
and a glass of wine in her hand.

we held each other close in the bathtub,
but there was no way to get out of the glass.
