Pool in the Hills

I listen to Michael Sembello's "Maniac".
I am underwater.
I move to the bottom of the pool.
I stick my pinky toe in the water grate.
I hook my life there.
I wait for the bridge.
Then I let go.
I surface and reach for my cell.
I speed dial Domino's.
I give my canyon address.
I go back underwater.
Lionel Richie's "All Night Long" is playing.
I am supposed to work now.
Things are expected.
I sink back to the bottom of the pool.
I want to make it the whole song.
I think I can do it.
Maybe, play tennis after.
