Jenny Billings Beaver’s most recent poem to appear here was Night and Day (June 2011), published as part of Contributor Series 9: If Men Had Ears.

By Jenny Billings Beaver

Sure, I could have worked
fewer hours, learned
to cook, been at your beck and call
in the bedroom, desired
children less, gone to church
willingly, tried to “get it,”
and you, more often.

But you and I both know it
would not have worked anyway–
I never would have moved,
and you had no intention to stay.
