Gene Pool

Dark shadows and golden light
Dance on concrete walls of the Aquarena
Echoes of barefeet slapping
Other children laughing and squealing
Some splashing or horsing about
Swimming dangerously over the deep end
While we sit in chairs behind glass
Your leg in a cast, eyes wet
My first love
And I hold your hand
My swimsuit folded, unused
In the empty chair beside me
