LUCY HOLT

Noon Swim

extract 

 

At the river’s swollen joint we dived in,

suddenly light and jointless

as our six feet mixed the warmed crust of water

with the icy below.

The frangipani I had tucked behind my ear

was presumed drowned until it resurfaced between us

as a beautiful relic.

Matchstick-sized

skinks darted at our every scream as if

powered by sound.
