Lot’s Wife

Lot’s Wife

I do not understand why I have been born
With words and music
As my solace
Also, my happy place
And I don’t know why
At 57
I’m not supposed to feel the music
But rather sit
And clean up
And, please be quiet
..I’m not interested in your day
…everyone’s tied
They go to separate rooms

During the day
I am alone
Save for 1-1 1/2 hours, all night I’m alone

And I like to feel pretty
I was never the pretty girl
Now
With so many beautiful dresses
No where to go or with

I do not fit
And Ezekial reaches for me

There is no lower East Village
It’s all gentrified
There is no escape for the misbegotten
But the fringe

Who’s on my shoulder?
Ezekial or the fringe

I’m supposed to be here
I’m here
To teach you
What happens, what not to do
And what happens when a woman crumbles
Lot’s wife, she looked back…and turned to sand
