Somebody is diving into the water. It’s a woman; her legs are too nice to be a man. Her name is Lizzy. She is underneath the pier at Blackpool. It’s July. She has been pushed, because she’s wearing a dress, or maybe a funny bathing suit. It was probably her husband who pushed her. There’s a dog named Henry barking at her. She may have misjudged the depth of the water. Her husband name is George, and he got away pretty fast. He disappeared into the crowd at Blackpool pier and bought ice cream. Lizzy is diving in to get something that someone threw into the water. Or maybe she was hot, and just jumped in to cool off. She may not be able to swim. A man dove in to save her. All around there are sounds of screams, water splashing, and then… applause.
