Lovers Never Leave Her
by Angela Yuriko Smith
Her lovers never leave her..
She treasures them all
keeping them close
holding them dear.
There are no arguments
over chores. Their gaze never strays
to wander to other lovers. They remain
steadfast and true, devoted to her
and transfixed by her words…
after attitude adjustments.
She has found the perfect
solution for peace is a solution
of 50% sodium hydroxide at 300°
and a prick of potassium chloride…
strong enough to dissolve weak flesh
but weak enough for keepsakes.
There is no jealousy
no infighting in the ranks
no barbed comments at all.
A harem of bones—
her lovers never leave her.
