Swim Meet

By Damien Knight

Deep cold blue water
below the feet
tense awaiting the gun
this is the meet
a rush of sound
a cheering crowd
black, eyes shut
the water surrounds
faster faster faster
turn and pray
that you will win
the race today
grab the side
light blue ribbons
held in pride
heat winner
