water-bottle warm our bodies collide

waterbottle

passing to morning toilet we meet,

floorboards creak under cooling feet:

 

water-bottle warm our bodies collide,

pyjama-hidden her blessed bumps hide.

 

hug-hopes lure me back to creaky bed,

girlish geography, grey-haired head.

 

calculating, wife-evaluating eyes,

I help her stubborn mercury to rise.

 

welcome gripped  between our thighs,

harbour-hugged, placid her eyes.

 

shy space pliable, hormone-drenched

(are gender-thirsts equally quenched?)

 

slightly battered, older bodies puzzle,

almost settled, middle-aged snuggle;

 

thirty wedded years, tried and tested,

marriage measuring what we invested.

 

fallible flame often flickering low,

pragmatic love binds bride and beau.
