Eye Have Lived

by Joanna Gilman Hyde

Eye have lived a divided love life:

Peter was and is the father

of my three children

since 1987

David has had my heart

since 1993

butt he’s married

Hunter had my twat

since 1999

butt Eye got mad at him —

he claims Eye gave what we had

away —

so now Eye have my self

without a man

and Eye am a woman

who needs a man

for family

for heart

for gratification

and for partnership

Eye have never had a partner

for my art
