BFtP: twenty-three and twenty-three

| Sunday, September 13, 2009
Another Blast From the Past - the second of my poems to be published in my university lit mag. Can you feel the co-ed feminist rage?

***

I hear it all the time

Dumb slut shouldn’t spread like peanut butter

as if life spontaneously came to exist within her womb,
the catalyst forgotten.

Twenty-three and twenty-three
but she is blamed for all forty-six
and the pregnant XY whistles and walks on

unhindered by the truth of science:

we were all women once.
