Wading Pool

I transform myself

There was a time

I could transform myself into anything

I wish I were a fish

And I am

Not so afraid

To not feel the bottom

Floating free down into darkness

Around and around in the green

There is no fear

I put my head under and swim, cool, swishing my newly fashioned fins

I resume my shape and stand, a boy

Looking out to the fearsome lake
