POEM: "Her Comments On A Sad Excess"

Her Comment On A Sad Excess

I had already known her 
the most beautiful woman
in the world as shocking
as a very dangerous wire
exposed and waiting for a child —

sometimes weeping in the night 
she hates that she was so unready
there's always so much wanting
she can't believe she's so different
drinking whiskey and choler
pleading to the sadly devout
someday they will finally see
their baffled glasses failed them
and fully woken they'll lean
towards a different light
and forget she isn't there.
