Road Trip 2020 (Swim Me a Snake)

the river’s icy

the current is too strong, son

but no one stops us

i can never look

without wanting to dive in

to fully swim. live.

they get this from me.

these kids who are not my kids.

these kids who are mine.

we swim for ice cream.

for these fleeting memories.

for their childhoods.
