It’s International Women’s Day

x

Women holding children

There are men, too,

It’s the men making the choices

For the war

Women rule, here and there

Some are good

Some are bad

Women still earn less than men

Too many live reactive lives

Rather than pushing

As any should be

With dreams, ambitions

Owning life

Rather than waiting for the chance

As if it were a gift

From men

x

So much I do not understand

But I think I understand that much

x

Frankly,

And you know

Too much is wrong

And it should change

Slow Men

x

God bless slow men

(I don’t mean still waters)

Who are not evil

Who have sins in the past

And who knows

For the present

x

But do not move in haste

To rule the world

Or a part,

Who listen sitting down

Or walking ‘round the block

x

Who are not old

But take pleasure in

Slow ways

To make love

And have love, after

X

I might talk slow women

Except

They know the wisdom

When to be fast

When to be still

A Book of Second or Third Genesis

A Book of Second or Third Genesis

x

What if Adam had

Eaten first?

On the outside, maybe

Pretty much the same

And on the inside

A righteous change

To history

x

Though, of course,

We wouldn’t know it

What we’d know

Is maybe men

Forfending, maybe

Or a readier

Different sort

Of heart from women

x

Forgiveness all around

You see,

It’s possible

And it’s possible

Men would have understood

Something more

Of consequence

x

Hmm, is it possible

The hurt of childbirth

Might have been

Visited the other way?

And to get us through

Each day,

Might men have learned

To ask direction from

The partner species?

Not because of childbirth

But because,

You know,

Each day

x

A second book of Genesis

Isn’t around the

Corner up ahead

Unless there is

A fanciful commission

But a forthcoming way to think

That doesn’t hurt

Except in ego’s pocket

x

Might help

A world

(a human world)

That is at present torn up

Over truth

A service, by the way,

Of creativity

To fill

A needful break in solid life

She at the Harvest’s Edge

She at the Harvest’s Edge

 

Women look to get it right

They appear to be on line in every way

They dig to find new truth

And ways to keep what’s hale of old

They don’t take from men

Though men should give it over

Hospitalism

Hospitalism

 

My sister tells me it’s a man thing

Not wanting to go to the

Hospital

It’s certainly true that I do not want to go

And that I thought this

A healthy inclination

Now I wonder if for those women who

Care so much

(In quantity and quality) if there is a

Kind of comfort there

Someone else to provide, to

Decide,

To break the news

And deal with it first

Lysistrata Vote

Lysistrata Vote

(USA, elsewhere)

 

A comedy by Aristophanes

 

And a Spanish film

From 2002

(Thanks, Wiki-P)

 

The Lysistrata woman

Wages sex against men who

Rather

Want to go to war

 

She wins, averting

Armageddon

Between Sparta and Athens

 

And, as in all good comedies

(Classic, say),

The community is better,

Stronger for it

 

For her

 

Now

 

For all shes who must be obeyed,

Time for another laugh like this?

Gender Mutilation

Gender Mutilation
(against FGM)

If justly turned around
Pleasure will be erased
In the journey of
Humanity

Men, awake

Not because men are
Called to save the
Lady in tower

But are signaled
To remain below
To lift from the mire

Of earth an ownership
Of villainy
