The Grip of Rain
by Bill Wolak


Undressing quickly
outstretched on the bed,
clothes stripped back
but not removed.
Your waist narrow as
a ribbon of moonlight.
Your flesh soft as
dawn fog rising
from a warm lake.
Breathless as a whirlpool,
you hold me
with the grip of rain.
Your body irresistible
as a waterfall’s perfume.
