A Dose of Kyle

Writing by Kyle Freelander

Swimmers are not allowed to



for they must grow gills

to become one with water

and none with air, to have

nostrils sewn shut for speed;

to decrease water resistance.




for this is not a saltwater pool

and our tears will be eaten

by chlorine and slapped

away by flippers. It is a waste

not to be wasted.




for it makes them sink

with an aching cave that holds

them to the ground and keeps

them from moving forward

and upward and deeper.


Don’t get lapped.

You’re not allowed to.
