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.

 

“I Do This”

I came from New York parties

where the opening line was:

“What do You do?”

and we all know

it’s not what You do that counts —

it’s the person You are

Morning Realization

The Scraggly Apple

is Dead Butt Eye am Alive

to know It fully

The SHLONG SPEAKS:

Dr Blair, on the night of August 14, 1999

Eye made you sign a contract for sex.

Eye would like to renew that contract,

update it by 19 years to include

hotel, food, gas, all extraneous expenses

+ $500.00 upfront per 24 hour period

of My Companionship.

Is this too much to ask for the continuation

of what was a marriage based

solely on sexuality?

A Night of Firsts

I have put My Hair

in a braid

for The First Time

since My Son was born

over thirty years ago

I have served My Self

The First Slice

of My Very Own

ice cream cake

 

Think I’ll go have more

Goldilocks Says:

Eye Am The Universe

To My Tiniest Cell:

We are right inbetween

The Infinitely Small

& The Infinitely Large

& THAT is how

We can know

both

And Eye Have Maria

How Do You Get To Be Anything

Without Being A Wanna-be?

NOTE:  Eye am already

everything I have ever

wanted to Be —

except a helicopter pilot —

not YET

Is The Price Right?

Every Woman Knows

Prostitution is Marriage

With Every Bed Made

LIFE 2

We Come From The Light

Of The Star Called Sun & Moon

Why?  We Must Know Why
