Buckaroo Swimming Pool

They piled into the little rust bucket of a truck

Three people and what felt like 12 hundred dogs

Bathing suits worn beneath their clothes
And trundled their way up the hill
And flung themselves away from the heat of the day
Into the comforting
Icy embrace
Of the lake way up high on the mountain

A tangle of fishing poles
 Seaweedy hair and a nip out of papa’s flask
As they watched the sun make its slow descent
Felt the mud squish beneath their feet
Having fun, splashing around
In a buckaroo swimming pool
