Sometimes you take the plunge when there is no water
here the divers-three divers on a board rise up out of sand
then fall into a blue day, made bluer by the cleansing
winds from the Caribbean. We are witness to the falling
to the divers 3 in the sands of Coney Island. John Ahearn
bids us greetings and farewells, sunsets and sunsets.
Sometimes you take the plunge when the water is not near.
