upon still waters

(Michael Timmins)

He said, “you make me feel
as desired as a crackling fire.”
She said, “I saw a man out walking
upon still waters…

(I want to lie beside you
in a warm bed,

feel your heart
beat in my throat.)

… and no one stopped to stare.
There he was, all alone.
out walking upon still waters.”

He said, “you can feel it fall,
All at once upon the land.”
She said, “you don’t know what you’ve missed
until you’ve walked upon still waters.”
