I’ve been expecting you.
The blanketing warmth of steaming water
melting down my body
in wave after wave of comforting wet
almost disguises the scrape of the shower curtain
sliding gently open behind me.
You are not so slick as you might think
but I am slicker than you know
and water is irrelevant to that.
I finished cleaning minutes ago
but you may wash me anyway.
I won’t mention it.
