A Bride by Rich Quatrone

A BRIDE

There’s still hope for me, then.
Some mad scientist will piece together
the parts of dead women and create for
me a bride of frightening beauty.
And she will hold these lost lives that
hold her together with solemn respect,
so much so that when she kisses me
I will know the love of all women
and all the men who ever loved them.
