You're angry


You're angry because I've written
about you! After a few enraged
sentences you spit on my face.
I'm infuriated: Yes! I have written
about you! And I will write more!
Ten love poems for each slap, a hundred
for spitting! Love has a high price -

On the other hand all the shit
a poet has to lay her hands on
might turn to gold.
