At midnight the moon failed to illumine the lake.
A girl and two boys entered the lake's darkness .
They paddled the boat to find an abstract moon.
They feared their moon had fallen to the bottom .
Girl could not swim but one of the boys could.
The other went to the lake's bottom to learn.
And he is still learning the perfect way to swim
Remembering the way he had learnt to swim
As when his life had begun in murky waters.
Girl forgot how to wake up from the paddle boat.
She was lost in a reverie about an abstract moon.
Then real waters sneakily entered her warm lap.
But she hardly felt their cold against her stomach.
The story only he can tell who knows swimming.
