Poem: On looking back on lifeguards

Poem created in response to Poetic Bloomings’ “Life is a Beach” Gauntlet.

Day 6, July 6th

Prompt: Lifeguards

 

(form: Lune –a trio of them)

On looking back on lifeguards

tan, buff, water gods
the lifeguards
will risk all for us

tan, toned, hot sun gods
cool in shades
cooler in the chair

tan kids in a chair
more at stake
than they likely know
