Proper Tragedy

As sincerely,

as satisfied
as a secret lady can be.

It is nearly one miracle.

A passion!
A failed art with reflection;

A poor woman ordinarily has little shame,
but she comes with
red knuckles
sensible shoes.

She holds secret meetings
with passionate things.
Artists.  A learned taste.
A hushed taste for her.

I see women walk over her. In stiletto’s.
Teal designer hand bags dangling
from rich, white chocolate
Proper uniform.

What a proper tragedy!
