Wading

Chris Campanioni

Spit paddle stream

The sound of your voice

I could never know

 

How far

You like to enter

Without a lit up

 

Sign to let you

Know exit mouth

Baby in a bar

 

Put on your best

Tank top & bottom

Out the way

 

A bond

Villain drops

Into the black

 

As long as your

Air stops moving

My mouth full

 

I’ve never had

Enough of that

Ambidextrous or

 

Just dexterous

One & two &

Meet up

 

& let’s play

House, make

Fire by making it

 

Move faster

I don’t know

Once I told someone

 

I don’t know

Who I am

When I am

 

By myself

When I am

Buying myself

 

On the street

Everyone stops

Open wide

 

Like no one not even

Me magazines & video

So different depending

 

On who I am inside

Of lately like the weather

It comes & goes

 

Do you know

What that means

It means enough

 

People want

To hear about fire

Everyone either gets it

 

Or they don’t

The cost keeps

Rising I told my friend

 

It’s through the roof

I said & used my hands

To show him

 

My studio

Has no fire
