indoor pool

here’s our indoor pool, i
mostly use it for my back —
i make a lot of money here
as chief poetic hack

it’s hard, between eight-liners,
finding time stay in shape;
a mountain home is easier
or one out on the cape —

the butler and the maid both left,
the towels aren’t on the shelf:
i’ll have to walk inside and get
a beach towel for myself

at least the wine is chilled;
the stilton cheese, right where it should –
although i’m inconvenienced, i guess
is pretty
