DAMSEL CAUSING DISTRESS

DAMSEL CAUSING DISTRESS


The knight errant sent for me, but I’ve gone missing
For three days now, while he’s composed a ditty:
In the tide of feminism I still haven’t given up kissing
Being what is termed fatalistically pretty - 

But I can be the ‘no’ that makes for nice
When his flame burns under his boiler suit,
Then I’m decently torpid like a fish on ice
Where the guts need to go when the runts root - 

A pillowing breast, my nightcap a soliloquy
To hell with his billowing sails and pregnant ships
Let him go, this guy who’s got everything but me
With his big thighs, big legs, big hips - 

All the things we women should shun
Save satin, silk,  squirm,  sperm,  and …sun.

(c) Rosemarie Rowley
From IN MEMORY OF HER (2008)
