Surface

Awkward formed
You were.
Moon head and
Swimming eyes.
Hard to catch in
Spit, drool, dribble,
Squat arms drowning
At your pink sides.
Frog legs kicking,
All the strength
Of a merman
Trying so hard.
Blew bubbles,
Oily air reflecting light,
But you never
Broke the surface.

Awkward formed,
Fleeting,
A figment of
Their imagination.
