dear cold showers

dear cold showers,

not that y'all are easy -
thank you darlings
for your fresh charm.

for showing me
how fun masochism can be - how it can seep
past clear curtains
and under the door,
pushing out steam! -
and thank you
for making me a little badass.

college kid,
tutor,
aspiring teacher,
camp counselor - I
sign up to get my patience kicked
regularly! and
thanks to you
it need not even bruise,
nor I grit my teeth.
I can do things
like hop out of cozy
for my lovers
without minding a lick - with quick
effortless feet -
the thermostat, the water, baby,
it's all me!
(thanks for the looks of "crazy" I get them to shoot at me..!)

mhm, even those of you taken in
necessity
have been dears to me.
You do it perfect,
each one,
sweep the heat from my hair
and leave the breath in my chest
especially joyous,
grateful,
quick -
blissed.
