Bastardizing Feminism

Aurora Phoenix

Insights from "Inside"

when you call me

feminist

with that sneer

that mocks blue-black

from deadened eyes

have you consulted Webster

as you disparage

inexactly?

is it equality

that prompts

your jaw tightening

snarling disdain?

what fear you

if I stood

shawty

at your side?

when you label me

feminist

in that tone

befit for excrement

you trod upon

now befouling your nose

did you crack open Oxford

before you hurl

erroneous aspersions?

is it not right

in your eyes

smeared with sycophantic

self-adulation

that I dare believe

I am deserving

of status

non-secondary?

when you brand me

feminist

as you would

a wandering cow

to which you lay claim,

who irritates

with wayward ways,

do you peruse American Heritage

as you slander

from spittle-foamed lips?

is it my audacity

to advocate

earnest and articulate

on behalf of myself

and sisters in subjugation

that tightens your colon

as you clench

your misbegotten gains?
