Wade, Wait, Water.

The liquidity of time.

Water. Photography. Timetravel.

Old summer was
so much less hot
than this one is…
I kid you not.

But kid I was
in way back when
and our old pool
did make me grin.

Cold water from
a bright green hose.
A one-piece suit
no shoes, no clothes.

Where is she now —
This young daughter?
In wrinkled tank
and time-water.

NOTE: Photo: July 1968. Who I was before Roe v. Wade. There is “climate change” going on now at every level. It’s all just so…hot.
