Mineral Bath


She covered her private

parts at the bath house.
Mineral water filled a tub,
centuries old.

She felt cold until
an old women handed
her heated sheets –
covering skin.

The woman brought her clips to
lift her auburn hair.
The sheets cooled as the
tub filled.

A stray cat
peered into the window –
purred, kissing glass.

The old women
removes the sheets, grabs the
arm of a young lady – she carefully
steps into aged porcelain.

Tiny bubbles
surround her skin.
A soft pillow for her head;
now, relaxed.

Dreaming she said, “Of a
cat kissing glass,
alone, at last.”
