After the Swim by Tim

It had been a good swim

that day as I dried myself

in the cubicle.


Then, one by one, I

donned the garments of



The suit and tie,

to cover my nakedness.


The watch, so I could

arrive on time and not



The house keys, so that

I could keep my family

safe and secure.


The spectacles, so I would

not feel a fool if people

were addressing me

and I didn't realise.


Finally the wallet, to

pay my way and show the

world who I was and that

I had made it, so to speak.


I wondered how Adam felt.
