From the book:

The other woman

She blooms in his mind,
a poisonous rose.

She wants to carry his babies
and I can’t stop her,
my friend said.

For hours, we walked around Soho
talking about our men,
how not to lose them.

Desperate times call
for great lingerie.

We bought thongs,
black lace with velvet roses.

At home, I shaved my worries
and dimmed the lights,

pretending to be
the other woman.
