The Boatman

Meek as corals that curl to the sand

you are the version of Leonardo in Titanic.

Your eyes, a subtle shade of blue –

piercing the sea, and nose and jaw

of dignity! Your ways, masculine of stance

arms and thighs muscled in deep glowing brown –

salty in the deep. Your sweat, fragrant

as air, is God’s perfume.
