When all the Affairs are Done (an archetype)

Beer garden, Rye.
For lost loves – who couldn’t have cared less about love
She’s used up her “35 miles of men” – and more.
Ahh, those sexciting swinging 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s but
Nowadays, she notes, toyboys glance
just the once.
This then, the inevitable residual psychological stasis, a
tangled memory prison of sexual / emotional karma
binding her mind strong as if
cast in iron with
a suffocating sense of emptiness, the
inexorable long and lonesome end..
