Last swim of the summer

In this concrete vessel of cool chlorination

The water held me up,

Tirelessly resisted my strokes

From end

To end

And again.

All summer, the early morning sun peeked over the trees

And spilled daylight on my wet head.

But it was the alchemy of low afternoon sun

On this late summer day

That transmuted plain water into

A brilliant white purple mercurial elixir.

I floated there alone for a long while.

Last swim of the summer

– Perfection

last swim of summer
