we are edenic indeed
so before atom knocks up eve

please allow me to say

i’ve fallen in love with you

it is with a heavy heart
and precisely why
i must engage in this dire task

weaving this

cautionary tale for my unfortunate third husband

i am a

mother
artist
moody bitch
entitled
lush
lover
hostess
queen
bee
child
Kentucky girl
romantic
witch
hopeless
sharp
strong
revolutionary
suicidal
desperately punk
beautiful

woman who will never stop loving you
once i call you mine
