From Five Letters To A Married Woman (iii)


he has a large nose or a small
appetite a taste for tinned pears
a gold watch a woman in chains
both sides of the coin and you. he
has a pin-striped suit a stamp
collection a nose for wines a
library of victorian smut
a running joke a standing joy
and you. he has the broken pieces
of the portland vase an original
big toe the pacific ocean the 8
wonders of the western world and
you. he has a buick riviera a san
francisco street-car a covered
bridge a calf with its head on
wrong but last of all the man
you married my darling has you.
