Day 317 – a woman scorned

Thursday, July 14, 2011
Day 317
1:11 am

a woman scorned

1.

one hand emptied
of justification,
the other full of
reasons

her breath, calm,
handcuffed

one heart, battered
one limb, splintered,
down the drain

his pride,
shaking in its pants

2.

some part of a womyn
whose ever been
handled,
pinned,
followed,
hassled,
pushed,
dragged,
or worse,
much, much worse,

feels an inner grin
for another womyn’s
revenge upon some
itty bitty limb of a
little, tiny, so-called man
