Poetry Friday: Mr. Darcy by Victoria Chang

In the end she just wanted the house
             and a horse not much more what
     if  he didn’t own the house or worse
                     not even a horse how do we

separate the things from a man the man from
             the things is a man still the same
     without his reins here it rains every fifteen
                     minutes it would be foolish to

marry a man without an umbrella did
             Cinderella really love the prince or
     just the prints on the curtains in the
                     ballroom once I went window-

shopping but I didn't want a window when
             do you know it's time to get a new
     man one who can win more things at the
                     fair I already have four stuffed

pandas from the fair I won fair and square
             is it time to be less square to wear
     something more revealing in North and
                     South she does the dealing gives him

the money in the end but she falls in love
             with him when he has the money when
     he is still running away if the water is
                     running in the other room is it wrong

for me to not want to chase it because it owns
             nothing else when I wave to a man I
     love what happens when another man with
                     a lot more bags waves back

- Mr. Darcy by Victoria Chang
