Ah Woman!

Covetous woman
stifled on a warm hearth
alerts to an interloper’s stride
bracing herself for the assault

Stirring passions
of envy
swiftly subdued
repressed
pretense in flames
like crushed flowers
charred in spring

A solitary reaper
harvesting weeds
growing luxuriantly
persevering
despite herself

Unrequited love
flashes like a blade
thrust into her bosom
the rapier swings nimbly
cutting the air
like mercurial wit

The viper strikes
filling its venom
nemesis unwinds
dissipating in the air
condensing like droplets
