Something I Noticed Recently

Something I Noticed Recently

A woman who comes to prison
To visit her man caries a
Certain look about her, legs splayed
Under the table that separates them,
Hooking her ankle behind his.
Contentment washes over her face as she
Takes ownership of her man.
None of that diffidence an unsure woman
Telegraphs at other times, other places.
Just the take-it-for-granted
Certainly that she is where she
Belongs, with whom she belongs,
Even if soon she'll have to leave
Him behind to face a lonely
Bed for as many years as it takes.
