Poet Rummager

Inching close to him –
her ring fades in the twilight.
Shadows hide her sin.

Scarlet-lettered girl.
Tongues wagging, fingers pointing –
I’m glad I’m not her.

His ring gleams bright gold.
Power gives him what he wants.
Women sell their souls.

Toxic talk at whim –
entering and breaking hearts.
I wish I were him.

Identical sins.
Men being men; it’s all right.
Cast stones at women.
