A Poem by RUBY MASON
Farewell, my lovely –
Pearls are a nuisance of human bondage.
Beloved, never let me go walking
on glass, to the lighthouse, the sea.
In the time of Cholera, kiss.
Kiss the beautiful,
and the damned kiss the dust.
Take a girl like you, farewell
(My lovely, we are still married)
to the lighthouse, the sea.
Women in love – a mind to murder
a handful of dust.
