Lucy Alexander # 54 To Swim

This one a swirl
a tangle of hair
starts at the roots
moves outward like living

and to swim she needs all her breath
the thing in her heart
flails and howls
and her hair dances

she moves out from centre
firm with her back
throwing out dispensible curls

the way she throws out her arms and swims.
