Salomea in her element

How many times have you, ex-lifeguard,
been rescued by lifeguards,
dragged rudely to poolside,
conveying not a word of thanks?

How often have you gasped and cried
frustration, annoyance,
at their interruption
of your supine serenity,

floating in bliss, suspended,
the law of gravity fading,
relaxed completely
and sound asleep in the deep end,

returned against your will
to harsh, inhospitable land?
