And, the quick of a moment felt so sad that even her burger seemed a dash bleu.
It was not, to her chagrin.
She always doted on cheesy ones.
She makes sure to try to sound measured because it’s the thing to do when she feels so unmeasured.
And, how still it is and how alone this is.
Small and full; tall and hungry.
Orestes and the Erinyes fighting over family improprieties.
She could write a myth lickety split.
Mice in high heeled, specially blown, glass slippers are the new beauty queens; because, in this pandemic climate, only the prettiest of the common vermin thrive.
Rodents cleansing the wicked.
Nut cracking and just in time for the holidays, come the Furiæ.
Three sannyasins of the Erinyes.
One of whom is Megaera, tempest decrying oath breaking authority.
Carrying wood yields returns in words, historically.
Nemo auditur propriam turpitudinem allegans.
She had once been found to be part of a common scold,
just another pretty shrew.
Some illegitimate, termagent harpy, ranting and bullying.
A peevish, malignant, clamorous, spiteful, vexatious, and turbulent one.
But, by this reckoning, he is found to be more shrew than she.
