her naked body

hunched over, drying

her legs with a pale,

pink towel

her wiry hair dripping

pool water onto the dark tiles

of the Daniel Meyer pool

changing-room floor

her skin, thin, sags and collects

under her breasts

around her hips

and above her knees

this must be what

it looks like to carry

the weight of the world 

for a lifetime
