I Remember That We Rowed, You Were Afraid

I remember that we rowed. You were afraid. And so, I gave the oars to you, I thought, you see – control Would help you feel It was your boat that moved Beneath your unsure feet. And then, I saw your leg, and I liked you! You laughed, hysterical! You always laughed When you were afraid. I… I talked about ‘meaningful relationships’, But you, as bold as only newness can make a person, You wanted marriage! You didn’t mean, with me! Although, you married me! And now, I’d give a bucketful of suns, To see you row, again!
