Poem: Guys and Dolls 

A friend told me
that her sister-in-law
is in love with
somebody else’s
husband who she
said she fell
deeply in love
with when they
both volunteered
to help build the set
for guys and dolls
at the high school
and were so much
in love that she was
thinking about leaving
her husband and
two kids but
last month she had
a double mastectomy
and so those plans
are off.
