Lifeguards (to De)


And then finally

We were at

Long last face

To face studying

Eyes and smiles

Forearms and hands

Fingertips dancing along

Veins on hand

Or fine wrinkles

Near eyes inching

Closer still closer

Feeling each others

Breathy lipped humidity

When at once

They touched closed

Then open finally

Breathing life into

The other silently

For the first

Time us lifeguards
