A Glue of What

When I let her cheat
on her husband
with me
('we're just girls afterall")
did I know then
what I don't know now?
How to clear out the need
from the greed
that time-worn song
about somehow knowing
that right is other than wrong
does that stick with you
and for how long
when the heat's turned up?
The glue I spilled
on her
a glue of what?
