In the pond

by Joe Farley

you could have
grabbed hold
of my arm
and pulled me out
when you saw
me floundering,
instead, you pushed
me under the water
held me there,
and watched me drown
while laughing,
sipping wine,
and singing arias,
with your lovers,
beauty I could not hear
with my ears
stuffed with frogs.
