Acquaintance

We raced two sticks in a moonlit stream

hand in hand

we ran alongside

shouting, cheering

lungs bursting with April’s chill

to the dam

where I lost,

seized by a current

that was just too strong

swept away

finally coming to rest

in a guiltless pool below

near the meadow

where you plucked leaves from my hair

and told me

how sorry you were.
