It is unfair to place the blame on
any man who refuses a nest
a quiet spot with me inside a home of pillows
I cannot offer more
than now more this summer more than next year.
It is unfair to place the blame on me when I sit up at night and think
of single people
Mississippi is a temporary sky-
One day I am going home
and he will go home
-we never speak of “our” or “we”.
