Maiden’s Tower

You have to have the end in mind / when you read the poem, Lloyd once said, / and ours is in days; I knew it before I came, / but I believe in trying all probabilities / of a history, especially / those that aren’t likely—it wasn’t love / the woman smelled, that couldn’t keep / the maiden from the snake.
