in the pool yelling
mom mom mom
look at this watch me
look look look look look

and to be honest
nothing Poetry is doing
is that radical
but it’s fun to watch
Poetry in the sun
with everyone else

right now Poetry
is so honest and pure
innumerable hours away
from night verses that offer
more grit and heartache

instead these chlorinated verses
sparkle as they leave the board
with a shout and a splash
