I Suppose (Draft 2)

I Suppose (Draft 2)

I suppose the day is long
and you will skip along with me
just because I’m cute like you.

I know a stream where
there are interesting things

Look there, hey
I see a splash, but

could there be
a ripple in your dimple

I’m just fishing

Catch me,
when I put the rod down
put the rod up

Well, actually
it’s the swimming conversation
and the thoughts on the water
that ripple, and I
don’t care if there
are no fish, except for
would-be drama of fresh fish
on the camp fire.

We can go to the supermarket
and then fry or bake, yeah
I have a recipe for Love at home.
