Sarah Butchin: “Self-Regarding”


He taught me how selfish I could be
Not because I wanted a lot 
But because I took it all
Betrayal is breathtaking done deliberately 
He didn’t make me worse
He showed me I was no better 
Did it with me, would do it to me
So do it, I’m done

Sarah Butchin writes, “I live in Scottsdale, Arizona, where I’m an MFA student, a wonderful mother to my five-year-old twins, a hard-working freelance writer, and a rather adequate wife. My debut novel In the Time of Towertown will be released through Black Rose Writing in mid-2020.”
