Night Swim

Colleen Kane


“She had a vision 
of a pale white flower, 
shimmering as if seen 
in darkness, or through 
water.”― Patricia Highsmith, 
The Price of Salt

“Don’t waste it”—
I told him once
in the dorm

Opening his door—
finding him there
beating off in bed

Balmer Hall—
across the street
from the Pool

Later we’d—
go swimming 
nude at night
