pisces.

in the water
it came alive
her short hair
spiralled and
shone
and her
breath
was still,
with waves
lapping gently
at her knees.

he spoke
of her body
as if it
was inflamed
with spirits;
an electric,
daring beast
he was drawn
to, but still
cautious
and circumspect.

she lied about
her age,
she lied about
the cage,
where she
held the real
beast.
and using
her body
to deceive
and calm them.
