Swimming

You 

in the water

A hand

that is not a hand

A hand that is

an extension

of a misplaced feeling

of a dare

a place where

water is cool

and wet and

hides the body

you’ve lived through

a place where

you’re a name

on a clipboard

you’re a girl

who should not

have gone swimming.
