Rock Bottom

Rock bottom
for a woman
is sobbing in your friend’s arms,
asking
How did I get like this? I am so smart, I am so smart,
how did I
get like this
when I am so smart?
and no amount of reckoning
can make you
think it was
not your fault
because you are smart
You were supposed to be better
by now
