Well-Bred

Thanks to my daddy
I’m a bitch never bred,
wide in the hips
like him and fertile —
but he ruined me
for children, drank away
my brood, drowned
my progeny in whiskey,
sired doubt and fear
about their bloodline,
chilled my heat
when I was in season
and open to the rut,
stifled my fecundity
so he could scratch
his own selfish itch.
