Poolside 1:15 P.M.

Sitting poolside at 1:15 P.M.

simply amazed by the potporri

of culturs intermingled in the

aqua-fried waters steaming in

the sun drenced blaze of July

Each bather laughing and frolicking

in the same liquid fun

ignorant of any bias here

at least on the surfaces

over which they all splash together

even here in the deep south....

where once men

and women and children

wore chains while others

depended on them

for most of their daily needs

Now black and white mingle

in a checkerboard of life

moving as one in a peaceful kingdom.

sometimes i wish the whole world

was sitting permanently poolside

at 1:15 P.M.
