Annulment Everywhere - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

Liza says
it was her last option
otherwise she will simply be hurting herself
like poking a stone on her head
or stabbing her own heart
with her own knife
from her very own hands

last option: annulment
the man she says is irresponsible
incompatibility was discovered late

then follows Maila
again separated with a man sired her a boy
it is the boy that she loves more
and not the man

and so with Verna
she finally finds her man on top of another man
right in their conjugal bed
she could not fire a gun
that is her regret

the family court is constantly hammering
the gavel
for another annulment of marriage
and everyone seems happy
celebrations is occurring here and there
balloons are bursting
firecrackers on the month of June

my Emma is silent
perhaps disturbed by this legal turbulence.
