#2,453 Never an ingénue

Never an ingénue –
never such
a person –
& always suspicious
of being untrusted –
[another appraisal by another
lover] –
How life is confused
distorted] by sly misdirections
off a splitting tongue –
a loosu
way with men
[it could
be said] –
far too close to know
her boundaries –
to know how
to find honest work
gossips love fucked-up stories]
