Let's Swim!

Let’s play
Like boys play
In cut off shorts
And running jumps
Into shallow water
Where knees get scraped
And go unnoticed
Until later.
When the bath is done
And the pajamas unfolded
The shiny scrape
Stings and burns
From the playing
Only boys’ play
In the shiny waters
That hides the depths
Of the cold,
Shallow water beneath.
