Sometimes I talk to you in the shower

when I am not brave enough to say it to your face
’cause in there you are a good listener
nodding as I tell you how I feel, sometimes
adding in your two cents

I like it when you wash my back
whilst I have to break bad news to you, and
your voice is kind when I am afraid to ring you
I talk to you in the shower as I wash my hair

My landlord thinks he ought to insulate better
hearing my voice trickle downstairs when we
get into an interesting debate, so I keep my voice low
putting a foot on your leg while I shave mine. Though

Sometimes I break into singing while I rinse off
not self-conscious in that venue with the water like rain
when you laugh and I don’t mind, you pick up the soap when I drop it
and when I am done, you vanish with the water down the drain
