the night the marriage ended,
i cleaned the whole house
and conceived your life as a virgin.
i will need another marriage
to avoid what I’ve been missing.
i need new cups plates and bowls;
what I was appears to be broken.
i loathed you with a special love.
once I filed for bankruptcy.
everyone wants to be me,
so you told me.
life squatted giving birth.
i wiped off the blood,
spent the evening watching television.
