Wee Scoops

Measure for Measure

Try not to look at the mould

I’m dipping my toe in:

Safe in the knowledge this swimming is free –

The danger’s in moulds that are looking at me.

 

I’ll ignore them:

Green fur encrusting the floats on a rope,

Brown stains persistent on every slope.

 

Swim on regardless:

I put my breaststroke forwards

And my faith in chlorine.
