A Respectable Wife
tantalizing moles
sit between her eyes
on her nose
she covers sadness
with western purchases
hides her longing
with imported silk
tablecloths
to decorate a villa
filled with children
a father-in-law
a sister-in-law
no husband
like many
he has stored his wife
in a respectable village
while he earns
American dollars
