I Resolve, 2011

A Tip o' My Cap to Ya!

I resolve
to correct the daddy
who insists on trying
to drag a latex swim cap
a head cascading with dry hair.

I resolve
to grumble at the little girl
who steals my favorite kickboard.
I'll just get out
get her another.

I resolve
to holler at that lady
who's livin' large
when she cuts across my lane
gives me a death stare.
(It must be because I'm so cute in my suit?)

I resolve
to speak crossly to the man
in the funny yellow cap
who asks to share my lane
then acts
as if he owns the place.

I resolve
to looked cross-eyed
at the funny little family
that's splashing
carrying on, one lane over.

I resolve
to remember
that we're all here,
in this together.

Resolutions brought
us to the community

I resolve
to keep mine.

The mere fact you went to a public place in a swimming suit is brave enough. Good luck with your resolutions.

You must be a former swimmer. That pic takes me back. :D

Confession: I don't know how to swim.

Or ride a bike.

Isn't that terrible?
