OF MERMAIDS AND SPORTS MEN.

Chlorine brings back memories

Of the days I thought I could swim

I’d flap by arms

And float by belly

Sink or thrive at whim

My coach would look down

At me and say

She’s gonna go somewhere big one day

I’d beam by brown eyes

Almost right out

Not daring to believe

I’d play it out

And now I’m seated

By the poolside

Just watching and waiting

The tide’s abating

Pink-Blue swimsuits out and about.

Life's a party in a sunflower field. Even when we wilt, we are beautiful to behold.
