Fins

Dive into the water
Swirling and curling
Around your arms and legs
Hold your breath
Close your eyes
Like you are dreaming
And if you imagine enough
You will be a mermaid
Swimming through the ocean
Dancing along waves
Until you have to come up for air
Until you have to come back to reality
Then dive again
One more time
Holding your breath
Closing your eyes
Trying to dream your legs into fins
Once again
