Chicagoetry: Diane Swonk, The Next Mrs. J.J. Tindall

Diane Swonk, The Next Mrs. J.J. Tindall

Lean, lithe, lovely
and loaded,

Kerridwen, goddess
of knowledge

and inspiration,
Golden Hair:

lean out
your window,

hear my
immigrant song.

I can cook,
clean, dance

and dream.
I am loyal,

clever, kind
and broke.

And since
the city towed

and repossessed
my car,

I am
twenty pounds

lighter.
Woman:

I am
your

slave.
