You loved the fire
of rogues -
imperfect men who shot up
the endings of the day
and drank down
too much beauty.
And like one of them,
you bellied with rebellion,
felt his tense seed
toil where women
never worked,
and craved his notoriety.

Poor girl -
his verses won the day
and the call of words
was too fickle a lover
for any constant star.
Don't blame yourself -
sometimes sisters
are more attractive

and all poets are

mongrels
Lady Caroline Lamb was one of Lord Byron's numerous affairs. She was the one who dubbed him "Mad, bad and dangerous to know"
