speech bubbles

i call my lovers and fears
to the table
by their proper names

i make them swim
for their supper
as i sing Summertime
in a dead ringer Ella Fitzgerald

underwater, undercover
life does flow without a struggle
and the right words cliff dive
off the tip of my tongue

but as in dreams, oh this loveliness
never meets the air
and what does is never fully understood
