futures

by Peter Humphreys

cool
water
gushing
from
stunted
tap

glass
house
hot and
humid
shade

languid
lily
pond

fish
dip
fish
dart

vines
tethered
tortured
trained
belayed

you
kissed
me

our
futures
made

You are a master at short stanzas that still paint full scenes for me. Great build up and ending.
