this wildwoman's vow

i'm washing you off
my hair,
my skin,
my life,
my heart

with a good man's
good loving
again

you'll see.

a full year--
i saved my self up
for you,
for us--

but you just
threw it all away
for what?

for lesser
easier
meaningless
trifles.

my only fault
was letting my heart
lead
again

casting pearls
before swine.

next week
monday
next week

i'm meeting an old lover again
for some cherishing
licking
loving
healing
of all the unnecessary wounds
you caused.

you undeserving swine.

i will be reborn
reclaimed

my pearls
mine
again.
