Melvin

Drip, swish, plink

Drip off the faucet

The liquid beads slide down her leg

Plink into the water

He raises his head

Swish goes his tail

The drops catch the candlelight

Magnifying the fairy hairs on her leg

Her skin is electric, like velvet

Drip, swish, plink

She raises the glass to her lips

The wine is translucent

He can see her lips through the glass

A permanent pout

Drip, swish, plink

A drop falls from her mouth

Drip

Slides down the curve of her breast

And into the water

Plink

She reaches over and scratches his head

Her blonde hair shedding water on the floor

“You’re a good boy Melvin, I love you”

Swish
