The Care-Filled Scene

8 October 2017

We waited at the light
for an eight to be carried
across the intersection
to its trailer after the race.
Came another eight.
Then the light changed.
Upside down, and out
of water, how like long
slender whales the eights appeared,
the rowers tending them,
tenderly, until
they were, again, one with the water.
