Love Song for Connie Corleone
but your husband...?
We won't be bothered with him anymore.
Beautiful as you were,
it is you, now, who captures my greater admiration.
I love your hair tied back headache tight,
the widows' weeds, and the jewelry
heavy as freight on a delivery truck.
What I love most is the flock in your eyes,
the murder of crows,
the steel of the guillotine behind your smile.
Let me be your command, darling,
already carried out.
