Swimmer

Vintage Words

.

Crossing oceans

hands cupped with moisture

afloat and fleet

you challenge all comers

and win ribbons

that say you

won.

.

Spanning universes

throwing off water

in your passage so wet

the thinest sides of the world

weep joy as you stroke

the wind and push

aside stars.
