What is a Woman But

monotony posted this earlier this morning and I loved it right away. With her permission, I'm quoting it here for anyone else who would like to read it.
What is a Woman But

What is a woman but a collection
of gospel melodies, trite tunes,
a butt, a breast, a birthday balloon
cupcakes in yellow chiffon
next to a well-anointed groom,
broom, afternoon kiss on concrete
whole songs leaking from fingers
the picturesque
grotesque
split in birth, intolerable hair
veil satire dare
tending the mending
light on her feet
able to balance on sticks or blocks
with one arm on a cart
another on a kid
it’s an entire symphony
to keep ahead
Great piece. Sensual and humourous, light to read yet containing meaningful, subtle undertones. Nice work.
