Pornography

   was his story,
  the history of
  his undoing,
  of his loss of
  integrity and
  freedom

  of movement,
  the start of
  sobriety, of his
  enlightenment,
 
  his learning
  the value of
  any woman,
  of  his wife,
  of me.  And
  the rules of
  of society.

  The start
  of a future
  free of his
  resentment
  of  me.
