Free Verse – Chastity – Marcy Erb


She’s everyone’s favorite virtue…

a woman, to be sure
wears white shoes after Labor Day
can eat what she wants and never gains weight
she expertly evaluates every fashion
and never stays out late
She’s a moving target with carnival game precision
she just might be rigged too
with a shocking sting she can slap you like
water hugging your belly flops
men of all times and ages help her ascend a ladder
and hold her aloft, teetering, alone, and on top.
~ Marcy Erb
