she brought me to her heart barbwired,
iron-caged, yet joyous
like a cureless felon;
she brought me handcuffed, docked to answer
nameless charges endorsed by her aggrieved
one-legged, unforgiving affairs;
and when i pleaded my heartís deep nail bond
and long line love, she declined all,
discounting my unmitigated allocutus
then served me sour love in peanut sachets;
when will my limestone tears melt
her frosty affection?
and when will these turbulent bouts,
clouds of doubts
liquefy in her rain of love?
