Strong Woman

She is cool, straight-backed, circumspect. She doesn’t ooze emotion. She orders green eggs and lamb, and lets the joke speak for itself, not offering a gratuitous laugh. Relentless in her pursuit of authenticity. She is seduced by the obvious. Using her stature to reshape the way the world sees itself, to reflect images that have always been present but weren’t being looked at. Her roots are strong, which is why she flies. She knows where she comes from and uses that to see the world.

I always wished I could be so confident and stoic. I ooze emotion way more than I should ;) Excellent poem, CJ, welcome to poetry soup!
