To Whom It May Concern

I regret to inform you

that when I close my eyes

I see myself living

in his house

with his children

flanking my sides

their cherub hands

tugging my dress

I am wearing the pearl necklace

he bought me

with the money he makes

at his cushy computer job

I cook him meals

and every night

I fall asleep in his bed

I have sex with him

wildly and passionately

and frankly

I never think of you
