Lilo

Saturday, June 1, 2019. Daily Brit Wit.

Lilo: 

Noun, British, trademark (Li-lo) 

A type of inflatable mattress which is used as a bad or for floating on water.

“On the water
I can’t see my shadow
and it’s for the best
there’s a reason
we need to be kept
separated
hallowed innards
spilling secrets like a waterfall
sprays misty rainbows
gushing out uncontrollably
a tango line
between
sultry and savoury
this avoidance game of ours
where I am alone
adrift at sea
bobbing on a lilo
an adult game of
hide and seek.”
