There is nothing quite like

Being a body in the water

Slippery and sliding all through

The water

That suddenly feels like air

Hair all waving around you like seaweed

Toes into the squishy bottom

Murky greenness

Of the lake that has suddenly become

The membrane that surrounds your body

You body that is usually so cooped up

In clothes

In shoes

In life

But by yourself in the water

You slide around in the liquid wind

Suddenly you are flying

Your body does not exist, only you

Just you, in the water

While everything sinks

You swim
