Undivorcable Rings


The ring of vowed love
Easy to be ousted off the hand
Unfairly facile to be kept in exile
But what of the indelible mark
Crimson red circling round the sacred finger
Not undifficult to unlove
What once loved dearly and insanely
Breaking the unbreakable
Now leaves immutable cracks of treason
On the scarlet petals of roses
The scented words you employed in thy language
What of the irresistible permeation of the fragrance
How are you going to hush it up
The more you kill the testimonies
O assassin! O assassin!
Many more signs you leave behind
Of love’s lullabies hummed over and over
