Her Indifference

Like a fool
I am trying to
Match your indifference
With mine.

But I will eventually
Die of indifference poison
While you,
You will soak yourself in
The love of your twins, of your children
Growing ever more bright
Ever more radiant
Ever more glorious

God, I wish I were pregnant
And show you a thing or two
Until then, until that next life
Here I am. Mute. Agonizing.
Recycling my used up indifference
Like a fool.
