More (International Women’s Day 2018)

The woman wants it all;

she’ll take the bread and look you

in the eye, hold the gaze as if

to ask why it’s so difficult

to keep her body and soul together

but it’s hard to understand

what more she could need when you

gave her the bread, more than enough

to keep her going


her dreaming fashions roses


Perhaps she wants it all

even in soft pink palaces

and flowery compliments

don’t ever stop her mouth

don’t ever stop her

don’t ever stop her seeking

a place to set out

bread at her own table
