in the bathroom

I used to run the water real hot

into a white porcelain tub with a chipped rim

until steam filled the room and

that’s when I would strip

and sit on the edge of the tub

dipping my toes

then half a foot

soon up to the ankles

then withdrawing as heat seared my skin

all the while breathing in warm vapors

scented in citrus and patchouli once or twice

thinking of nothing as the water cooled

bringing calm until

I could ease my whole self into the wetness
