January 17, 2015

Walking into Utah Lake and the Spanish Fork River, January, across snow and ice: tennis shoes and footprints in the river bottomThe pain
pulses
through my peds.

I can’t rememberBare feet in the sand, Utah Lake, January, Sandy Beach and the Spanish Fork River
why I stepped/
onto the ice
and snow,
then
into the gently flowing
melted
river.

Was it to prove Footprints in the river bottom mud, January, Sandy Beach, Utah Lake
that I could do it?
Was it a memory
of polar bear dips past?
Was it a beach,
and I’s just gotsta?

Or was it just/
to experience the shock
of being able/
to feel
again?
