There’ll be no folding, spindling, mutilating
of this woman anymore,
No bending corners to fit another’s frame.
Do you want me?
Then, we, together, must define our board.
You bring your dreams, your needs, your wants,
and I’ll bring mine.
We’ll sit, together, and lay the pieces down
to check the fit.
And if they don’t -
say your sharp corners won’t slide into spaces
where I curve,
or my pentaculars disrupt your checkerboard -
then it’s not meant to be,
and that’s okay.
We’ll each still have our pieces
and the freedom to seek another
whose terrain is more befitting.
