of 17 years left me today.
Yes, she left me.
Woke up and saw a note
…by my bedside.
It said: “I have finally decided to leave you
No reason given.
No statement or restatement of a grievance.
Didn’t say why.
But I know.
We were married to history
And we waited on history to deliver
After all, we bore names of people
who gave birth to a whole nation
How I wish she was named Leah!
