memories of swimming pools
by beth winters
i.
you remind me of drowning,
of bubbles floating upwards in a dream,
of a creeping pressure that threatens
to crush my hyoid bone.

you smell of suffocation.

ii.
you remind me of songs sung
on your last breath, when the
traces of air barely register
in your lungs.

there are ticket stubs flowing
from your mouth, past lives
in your eyes.

iii.
you are the sweet note in a song,
amplified until my ears scream
in an attempt to drown the noise.

agree with nynkeb! your place must be a treasure island of photographable wonders, but yeah, it requires a good eye like yours!

Interesting shot..yes, brings back memories of my childhood when mom would treat us to going to the city and the municipal pool. we.always begged for a few more minutes to swim..all the chlorine smells were potent! Also the smell of the hot dogs at the concession was overwhelming as we were always starving..:-)

That incredible image and the impressive text! This way it spoils the things the oblivion ...? What it will not do with our heart of children, so often forgotten?! Image of impact to think... A hug Antonio!
