washed up
washing up is sublimated desire
sensual warmth hot touch
smooth curves caressing sharp
edges cutting intimacy
an electric blanket welcome
not a body of human kindness
nor companionship but a reminder
of not cold presence
still stacking balancing one
above another draining gap
allowing dry morning delamination
while klein kettle boils for tea
