Image for the poem Reconciling Ledgers

Reconciling Ledgers

To invest in desire is not a casual decision.  
In him, I placed my wealth in hopes of gain.
In his child, I expressed faith in our future.
I mortgaged all that I was against his promissory note now in default.

Did not the gods of creation, whoever they may be, prescribe our lusts and give them value?
I severe myself from past indebtedness.
Today, I am free to offer my flesh against yours for our pleasures without concern for the reconciling of ledgers.
