Shameless women
Shameless women sleep alone
Wake up at 2am to eat chocolate
Instead of making love
To pale hard men

Shameless women write poems
that trace a thousand lonely
days in the face
Of noisy children

Shameless women ambush
Moments of being
In between the chaos
Of purposeful lives

And splash them, icy cold
Against their hot, dry breasts
