We swam out to the iceberg
Grounded at Middle Cove
In half wetsuits we lent
To the salt sea we dove
We shivered by the bonfire
Cold gripping our bones
Our shadows danced on the cliff walls
As the surf boomed behind us

We walked out to Three Ponds
Lugging beer bottles and wine
Behind the university
We walked through the pines
We streaked through the moonlight
Our bodies were fine
Starlight winked on the water
As the wind whispered around us

We climbed the old chainlink
Pool of Bannerman Park
We giggled and shushed
As we undressed in the dark
Only halogen linings
Silhouetted our stark
Our eyes drank the blackness
Our hearts beat beat like drums
