Remember, not one man in the room wished him undone
or misremembered the service he had done the state.
Even now viewers love jailhouse correspondence,
the soft promise of a conjugal visit won upstate.
In Cyprus, he would have found another easily,
with his glory and his tragic eyes, alone in state.
I can be glad he chose me like a flower from the corner stall,
before that moment, I did not imagine marriage to one of state.
I quickly learned to keep a tight bud of my heart,
blossoming too quickly will cause a rotten state.
Every gristly killer keeps a file of letters from the women
who have fallen for his charms while he is within the state.
And no one thought of him as murdering,
he was a hapless, loving man unconscious of his state.
