Except the three teenagers,
No one else came to the pool
Behind the motel, most days.

One was the lifeguard and one
Was the groundskeeper’s daughter.
The third was just killing time

While attracted to them both.
For hours, any sunny day,
The lifeguard would watch the pool,

And the groundskeeper’s daughter
Would swim a little, lie out,
And occasionally talk

To the lifeguard or the boy
Killing time, just practicing
Her flirting and her English.

This went on for weeks and weeks.
The lifeguard would remember
Losing her virginity

By her choice, clandestinely.
The time-killer would recall
The murderously long hours

Of doing nearly nothing,
And the groundskeeper’s daughter
Would get incredibly tan.
