Saw this poem in a beautiful handmade book from the library archives. It’s by Lisa Rappoport.
Bees and Cows
Wanting you, my own land
of milk and honey, harbor
reached at sunset, figs in the desert,
in your absence,
seeking your taste I fill my mouth
with the rest of the world, which leaves me
i wrote this thing and I’m working on illustrating it or maybe making it into a comic…. it’s called “Giant Woman”. it’s really unlike what i usually write but it was fun and necessary for me at the time, ya know? here ‘tis.
anyone who feels comfortable upholding the belief that “men are physically stronger than women”…. i request that they please just kneel down. and i will put your tiny head between my giant lady thighs. and i will fucking pop your head off your body like a pimple. because i’m a fuckin lady.
