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,
A figment of
Their imagination.
