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

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

you. he has a buick riviera a san

bridge a calf with its head on
wrong but last of all the man
you married my darling has you.

They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
