The Cottage

Eye have had My Fill

of wedding rings

& long black hairs

dislodged from corners,

bed & bath

The man is Mine —

if He is a Man —

and I cannot live

the single life

Possession

With This Ring

Eye Thee Wed

Upon My Brother’s Chain

Around My Neck

I Am Thy Slave

The Good Wife

Women are at least

as territorial as men,

and Eye run

a tight ship.

F.U. HAIKU

Eye may not want to

clean & cook for My Husband:

Eye fuck legally

AS IT STANDS

Eye hear the waves

from across The Guzzle

where rising

My Husband resides.

Eye will not be pushed around

by Him

or anyone else.

My presence

is

remarkable.

He Says The Affair Is Over

Is This The Oldest Line In The Book?

Before Coffee

There is nothing romantic

about The Sexual Power Play.

I am under His Control

and Eye don’t like it.

Eye am an egg

sitting here

and He is the forceful sperm.

I have no choice but to wait

for Him

and Eye don’t like it.

Who has put Me

in this vulnerable position?

God?

Today’s Summer

is The One Eye Choose

of Silver Robes

& Black Bathing Suits

tripping through the heated fog

of Our Hawk Beach

to South Side

where fighting lovers

meet with chaperones

to win back

the sultry longing

exuded by Their Latest

Expose

The Moncton Thing

There was a time —

boy was it a time —

when I was sent

to the heights

of sexual gratification

in a Holiday Inn

in Moncton, New Brunswick

without the face of a man

Question:

What is the allure

of The Lime Green

Prom Dress?

Answer:

Add a carrot

& You’ve got

Flaming June
