The Old Lady

The Old Lady

three times married,
twice divorced,
battles fought for her hand;
her youth now gone, but
her frontiers still restless,
her eyes still open
upwards to the stars,

the old lady bleeds
majestically
in dirtied waters,
shimmering with all
she has been;

she fills her skirts
with restless lovers,
suckles the faithful
in her domed breasts,
and lures them on
until their youth is gone,
bleeding, too.
