Another 2012 poem: "Venus, Again."  
I forgot this one, too.  Also Rhysling eligible.  It was in Sounds of the Night: February 2012:
 Sounds of  the Night

Venus again
by
Mary Turzillo

in the end,
when you start plotting how to kill him
without getting caught,
by phony tire blow outs
or organically grown poisons,
perhaps an exotic but slightly altered psychodelic, or simply
bludgeoning him with a stolen crow bar in his nasty sleep
She
comes and says,
Darling, you've gone and fucked it up
again,
you chose wrong,
and now,
I’ve given you ten
ten good times to fall in love
And you've used up nine.
