Murmur of the Magdalene

The sacred feminine squares off
Against the historical, hierarchical, misogynistic masculine.
Round and round we go.

A stab:
Saul of Tarsus, a most excellent writer,
Is a die-hard misogynist.
Freedom’s words deadening
Soul’s liberty
With chains of genetic gender.

A dodge:
She passes a cup of coffee
With a “yes, sir,” “no,sir,”
“Ya want some sugar with that?”
Narrow escapes of assumed roles
Never feed full freedom.

And on and on it goes…
It never stops. We all know.
I never win…
The harmony of chromosomes
Dooms me to dissonance in life.
