"Nobody owns me"
that's the best that she could do
for a philosophy
& umpteen years of private school

I loved her anyway
& built a roof to save her head
from every little phrase
that disagreed with what she said

& with that on our backs
how were we to react?

I reached into my pocket
for coins that were not there
knowing she'd be upset
where once she didn't care

Outside the hotel
she took her final leave
with a dry-eyed farewell
& not a tug on my sleeve

She keeps a piece of me
to this day, I'm unwhole
& she may not agree
yet I loved her then
with all my soul

In deeper debt
what we owe isn't worth
one red cent
of happiness for hurt
