Two Dolphins

Bozeman, 24 January 1980
for Marcia

Today my eyes made love to you
Massive steel gray primal Eskimo blubber
Thrashing in human-form enraptured
Stirring climax in a fishbowl sphere

I caressed the temple of your steel
Straddled your twisting torso
You propelled us using the stroke of your fluke
In an explosion of bubbles

I stuffed my hand in the slit below your fluke
Moved my hand across your brow. We cried
then burst through the surface to swallow
the flapping bait
