Inez, When Someone Tells You You’re a Bitch

November 18, 2006


Woman with Crow

Pablo Picasso





Inez, when someone tells you you’re a bitch,
you’ve got a million comebacks. I’m supposed to think
you’re some old woman full of aches and creaks-
that’s your genius, dear: you cover your shit.

You have a dirty mouth; you love to use it:
once you start, no magpie can compete.
You’re louder than a string of firecrackers.
You thrive on noise, you love to make a stink.

You crank out lies until a girl can’t think.
You charms are much exaggerated. Still, Inez,
the problem isn’t you, you cruel pussy.

The way I love you is a sin. I know it-
but the way you fuck me is no trick. Your hard-on’s real,
and I’m a field just waiting to be plowed.
