a poem, one kiss

one kiss

( or: how is priscilla like Scarlett O’Hara? )

first, Priscilla loves & lives ‘Gone with the Wind’ ( though, today, she did not cry through any of the film; becoming Scarlett tough )

she and Scarlett are both Irish ( Joyce & O’Hara ) and mommy’s girls; let down by weak fathers, both

Priscilla and Scarlett both let their Rhett kiss them once, with real passions, before they married

, and they both pretend to soft hands, when their lupus should have kept her out of the sun

they are similar in their loves, faithful to the ends

and they both love, love money, gold, their pots of gold, secreted, promised, promises away

listening only to their silvers & gold, she, they, can only give a

kiss, one kiss
