LANGUAGE
At three in the afternoon, a woman in a red swimsuit walked into the sea and began swimming toward a pale blue rowboat. The boat was just a dinghy of a thing; not hers, yet, with her arrival, serenely seized. She lay across the center bench and crossed her ankles on the rowboats wooden rim. There was security in the organized lull of a buoyed boat, and the womans body made a midline between sky and sea.
The day was cream-colored, coral textured, so bright it could be gulped. Earlier, in the vine-thick hills above the shore, an improvised lunch had been devoured: smoked trout with rye crackers, pears and a marigold-hued elixir, hard cheese with halved radishes. A proper picnic could commandeer an afternoon, could turn a day over, knocking schedules on their sides.
At quarter past four, a plane passed above, its lopsided, sonar song startling the woman awake. In row eleven, a passenger whod requested his window seat months ago watched a tiny red speck in a sea of pale blue diminish until it was no longer visible. Unseen, the woman dangled a hand in the water.
