Write a Woman's Poem

- Emma Phillips

Write a woman's poem
in blood, tears and sweat,
dedicate it to your cat or
all the men you've met.

Write a woman's poem
in a room of your own,
plaster it across four walls
of any place you've known.

Write a woman's poem
juggle pen, career or child
serve it with sugar and spice
or plant it in the wild.

Write a woman's poem
from a woman's point of view
perform it with the words of men
who will not censor you.
