A Place for Marriage

There is a place for Marriage

in amongst the confessions

of many — The Vow

and if You break it

You’re in trouble.

 

My First Vow was “until Death”

and The Death was My Mother’s —

My Second

I don’t remember voicing

and the wedding itself

was an abomination.

 

Message for Women & Girls:

Don’t have sex

if you are fertile

and do not want to get pregnant —

If you do get pregnant

and you are afraid to have The Child

think of Him or Her

as Your Own Creation

Your Own Empowerment:

The Bond of Mother and Child

is Sacred

What’s The Latest?

My Divorcing Husband

has allowed Me to become

The Social Outcast

Who walks My expansive beach alone

Who sleeps with

The Virginal Banana

Who reads Her Verse

dressed like a vamp

while He refuses to ask

“How did it go?”

He Didn’t Hear Me

In My Favourite Restaurant

Eye overheard The Waiter

Talking to The Cook:

“How can You have time

for God and Your Wife?”

Eye called out from My Booth:

“What if God and Your Wife

are One and The Same?”

Belief System

The Human Mind can

and does believe anything:

Believe what you want

Over Peanut Butter Pie

Possibility

of The Devil proffered but

fiercely rejected
