Hey man, your fly's hanging open.
Oh no, I'm sorry -
that's just your mouth
all over this stage.
s, you used to talk about
. I don't know
when those first few letters
disappeared to leave us with ass-ism
The specifics of what you say
aren't important right now.
Insert information here -
This woman, that woman
Brown hair, blonde
Big tits, small tits
Handfuls of ass
, other body parts.
You sing songs
s about booty,
s and villanelles
about booty. What's that?
Well, fuck you
for forgetting about her brain in all that booty.
Why, I've heard prayer
s for it -
praises and praises and praises and
after hymn after hymn,
and forgetting about her and her and
her in the corner or hoar in the bible
And me with my pencil on this page,
so I can get on the stage
and tell you exactly what I think.
Your words are misogynistic
And I will risk it all to tell youI disagree
Your words are misogynistic,
and if you don't know what that means
I suggest you look it up,
because you are talented poets,
but you are using your diction
to screw women on this stage
And I will not sit down for it anymore.
I would rather stand up
and spew my own words at you,
than kneel down and let you
spray me with yours. Anymore.
but you are using your vocabulary
to rip holes
in women's clothes
that have been torn from years
And I will not lie down for it anymore.
So I am buttoning my shirt,
I am lacing my boots
and I am opening my mouth
to tell you exactly what I think.
You are talented poets,
but your words would better be used
as patches for our thread bear shirts
and linings for our shappy coats.
So I write you these words to tell you
your fly is open. And I ask you in the only way I know how,
zip it up.
