Wallace Dean LaBenne


Professor, therapist, author and poet.

It is ironic
to call it platonic
since she's having a child

It is laughable
to call it affable
since she's held in disdain

It is dismissive
to call it permissive
since she's been so defiled

It is depressing
to call it a blessing
since she's suffering pain

It is peculiar
to call her a ruler
since she's back in the wild

It is vanity
to call it sanity
since she's clearly insane
