“Women have tremendous power —
their femininity, because men can't do without it.”
Why do they follow me, these phallic wanderers?
Why do they cry over my stolen virtue?
I stand by myself, a woman by myself, a wild creature
by my self, and they track me to each lone, white-sanded isle;
I distain their morbid curiosity; what is so
fresh and stupendous and amazing about any female
eating victuals from a bowl?
reading lyrical, convoluted words to herself?
drawing a private tarot for herself?
dressing herself in clothes?
thinking intelligent thoughts by herself?
living whatever her life is as she may?
The dandy-then-sordid relationships
with these males, they bloom and wither away almost only
two blinks from today, unlike my resilient, resplendent violet,
and they are left wandering, these clueless, phallic adventurers
and I am left guilty, somber and weak, and worm-pallid
yet striving in their bloody-hearted shadows.
Author's Notes: I get tired of people staring at me; I get tired of thinking about my exes sometimes (not that I brood constantly, I don't) . But staring sucks - I was stared at while I ate my breakfast at a bus stop the other morning. And later that day, I thought about my exes, how one probably was really hurt by me inadvertantly and of another who stalked me for a time. This poem is the result of that timely brooding.
