Bath

by Robert Simon

In the bath
As I run my hand
Up and down my chest,
Listening to the hummingbirds
Sing in unison in my head

In the bath
The blue-green tinted water
Roaming up and down my chest,
Slanted light fades from my eyes
As they close and I close and return.

In the bath
It occurs to me
That Collins’ book
Has nothing to do with horses,
Nor do I, quite frankly, with hummingbirds.
