For Eric

He was a fast mover
and a smooth dancer
He could talk dirty
beyond your wildest dreams

His lies were music to my ears

Well, here we go again -
Me, flopping around on the beach,
a fish grounded and gasping
for air.
You, sitting drinking wine there
in the chair
there. Drinking me in
with the wine.
