This Maze This Woman by Donal Mahoney

Every man
needs a cane
and a German Shepherd 
to ford the mind
and engage the maze 
of any woman
single or married.
It doesn’t matter

which maze
which woman
as long as he
trundles on 
when he marries
supports his children
grows old
and then rises

one hot morning 
blinks in the ether
and asks himself
why did he marry
this maze
of a woman
only to find alas 
she’s gone
