Kept Woman

I have sadly,
locked the witch in the basement
after she took to sleep dancing
with late night hatchets.

I feed her three times daily
steaming farina bowls
sprinkled with cinnamon, prozac,
brown sugar and thorazine .

I send the young parish priest
bent on exorcism
down there twice weekly
to lay on holy water sanity hands
and attend her spiritual needs.

I pray morning and night
for her to be delivered,
sane or dead.

Hoping that we may again lay
twined together in
splendid silkspun webs of
dark beauty and color.
