  • With aching limbs

    I step into the shower

    feeling the hot steady stream of water

    coursing over me,

    causing the atoms in my body

    to dance freely.

    I stand in this pleasure

    for a never ending moment.

    Turning the taps off I

    brace myself for the cold air

    of the bathroom

    and wrap a warm towel

    round me like a cocoon
