Turquoise Joy

pool

They were twins. Small blonde girls in matching pink
bikinis. The only way to tell them
apart was that one wore purple goggles.
They dove and the water exploded with
splashes and giggles and the turquoise joy
of seven year old girls on vacation.

They have their entire lives ahead of them.
That’s what I thought to myself. Their whole lives.

So do I.
