What is it about water
            about desire?
So speechless here
a dam    a pain
in the low back
 
It’s your size
the solid earth of you
that makes it all so easy
Before you my eye was drawn
to flame-quick bodies
and now
 
in broad daylight
            almost always
there you are
behind me        in front
all your words
tamped down
your hands
sure
maybe you’re not even
thinking of me   maybe you are
lost in thought
            in bits of fabricated data
and I am the one drawn
by your gravity
            to touch the fact of you
 
What does this have to do with water
            besides dissolution?
 
S. Robbins from Pilgrimage, Meditations on the Svadhisthana Chakra
