For Nothing

Thanks. For nothing. There,
was there more? My vote
in place of simple dignity
you can’t even try to fake,
no more than that to it,
as the pure fire of love
burns through the junk
of moralizing politics
and business as usual
doing more willful harm
than any man’s assault.

    Ignore him, dear friend. You’re not a shuttlecock. You’re not a political trophy. You’re not a moral weapon. You’re a woman in love. Your dignity is in you and your lover, not in anything granted or taken away by man or law.
