for her lovers return from tempting all Fates
by defiling a body, branding woman's tresses
with his seed—and he causes true distresses
when protruding through broken golden fences.
still, the girl is unknowing—she's unmended
with his games and his taking chances. blindly
she caresses her belly, feeling wildly
for the kicking and beating heart. she does pray
that her son will become his father some day.
