the first skinny-dip of the year

happened last night

with a friend

just after sunset

at a lake nearby

and it was glorious.

in these times

of new rules and regulations,

of social distancing and avoidance,

or lots of hours spent at home,

it’s become more important than ever

to do things out of the ordinary

without harming anyone else.

so this is my vice:

running into the cold, cheekily,

snorting and splashing,

until firm grounds appear under my feet

yet again.

this, after all, is springtime.

somethings new is about to happen,

and this is its christening.
