Pretty Women.

I am Woman.

Woman doesn’t tear.

I bend backward, bend forward, bend universes.

my scars are lingerie, worn beautifully.

worn hidden.

worn away.

I am pretty.

pretty has no tears to streak her pretty face.

will you sing this pretty woman love songs?

songs unfinished.

trace them into my back.

I won’t complain of pain.

because I am Woman.

I carry loads,

yours and my own.

the grit of my teeth.

my hands wrung.

wrung red.

let go. let go.

pretty women have to be happy.
