Lukewarm
 
I looked in the dictionary
You define tepid
Not cold enough to freeze
Not hot enough to burn
 
I dipped my toe in
And felt nothing
Not the slightest difference
Even ripples are beyond you
 
In frustration I sent a tidal wave
But your benign shores
Smoothed it and tamed it
And damn you – you went fishing
 
So I’ll pulse and snarl
And flail and bluster
While you float and sail
Over me without reaction
