have you ever noticed that you never
see famous female poets who look
like marilyn or nicki or ari?
even the girls today whose words
are celebrated can't sell their rhymes
without selling their bodies.
i guess the new femme fatale
might be less feminist than i thought:
when your looks can ****, they ******
when your lips pucker like roses
and your body is angelic--
we let you take our libidos to heaven
but not our minds.
