words like weapons



We're w(e)ary of words like weapons:

Crazy bitter toxic shrill
unsubmissive Jezebel
Brazen bossy strident shrew
harpy whore abrasive prude

Contentious licentious divisive
dyke vitriolic trashy slut
Stupid frigid uptight bitch
catty diva venomous witch

Silly plain
too smart (shame)
Hysterical heartless
less than, Too Much

Settle down, you're overreacting

But silence isn't golden; big girls cry hot tears.
We bear on our bodies wounds of
unwinnable wars. Be sexy, submissive and
available, a bar canyon low and unreachable.

He hated her more than he loved her

Women aren't goods to trade, degrade or
dismiss. Labels are lies ten sizes too small.
Shed them at the shore, love, crumpled and
cast off like skin. Drowned and saved and
luminous, christen me Unashamed.
