Poetry by Elaina M. Ellis
Can a free-write about marriage be free or is it an oxymoron?
Marriage begs payment: pay for the husband to take the woman (cow)
off the hands of her father, as father grows tired of the girl-gone-woman (cow)’s
need to be fed?. »
Inner villanelle of a father-to-be without his Xanax
Father-to-be, you are not a villain.
Hell, black bile does not blackball from mating.
But you know, they’ll be your children. »
I am married to a man,
and while I am looking more
for a girl to kiss than
I would appreciate it
if you found a way
old Oklahoman dudes
of me traveling
to fuck them
like their wives won’t.

So what exactly is the difference between polyamory and non-exclusive dating, if none of the people involved are. »
