always
i have felt
that a woman
who cannot
Live
without a
man is
(Fill in the Blank)

but
why does
She
anger me so

i mean RealTrue
Anger

do i be-
Grudge
the hours
(the Many hours)
spent with her
FourHundredThirtyOne
pages of
Whining

i mean RealTrue
Whining

or

is it
could it
possibly
be

i am
Jealous
no
Envious
(Envy being the greater sin)

not of her
FourHundredThirtyOne
published pages, nor her
OneHundredFiftyTwo
published books, nor even her
ability to publish phrases like
“clouds the color of poorly washed cook pots”

but of her
not one, but
Two
SuccessfulMarriages
TWO

no
that can’t be
it cannot be
that i would
Envy
those

besides

just what
is a
SuccessfulMarriage
anyway

i mean a RealTrue
SuccessfulMarriage

is it one that doesn’t
end in Divorce
one that doesn’t
end in Suicide or Murder
(or Both)

or

does a
SuccessfulMarriage
simply never
End

at all

no

i prefer
GlitterGlue
i understand
GlitterGlue

GlitterGlue
makes sense
to me

GlitterGlue
especially
Blue
GlitterGlue
makes imminently more
Sense
to me
