The Irony of it All

The Irony of it All

Because of the curse of Cain,
because marked at birth
and belonging to that
restless clan, never content;
because also,
as the record indicates,
what keeps my attention
are the excitable women
who never betray themselves,
or only for awhile,
to a man’s shortened sense
of symmetrical, blocked out time;

because of this and because
some pennysnatcher, priest, or
keeper of the keys
needs to persuade you otherwise,
allow me to say
you’re the most woman I’ve known.

Just my luck that
circumstance, history,
not to mention
the crown of cares tugging on us each
construct to keep us apart.
