Pale limbs

The aged water looks new
under the gleam of the sun today.
I dip my pale feet into
the ocean hoping my legs will
tan with the reflection.
The salted water makes the sand darker and smoother
like I want my legs.
Afterwards, I wash the sand from my ankles and see
two grandmas talking to their granddaughter about Eeyore. Someone left their swimsuit, they say.
I didn’t even bring mine to lose.
