dear old ladies at the pool,

It’s seriously wonderous to watch you swim: the grace of your flip turns, the fluidity of your backstrokes, your spontaneous dips to the bottom of the deep end, all of which I suspect you slyly spent a lifetime practicing, quietly hamming it up underwater. But what makes it is the calm, coy look you all wear, half Esther Williams smile to cover an obvious corporeal glee.
