Olive Leaf

"Where have they gone, the green sandals?
I was not made to be a mother,
I had too stricken a heart,
so I wore green sandals to to stay apart.

Then one night a man stood in an olive grove.
He beat a viper till it bled,
then drew me down low.
I went farther than he'd ever know.

One night was all there was.
He fed me an olive leaf,
then broke the strap of my dress."
