No good man

 

Parama in head wrap on bus

“It used to be

so simple,” he said

(Ephesians: “Wives, submit yourselves

to your own husbands 

as you do

to the Lord”)

 

“Bullshit,” I said

“It’s all fucked up now”

(I tried that. It failed.)

 

I’d love to belong to some man

to be his submissive wife

if there was a man out there

with his shit together

enough to provide for me

and to make me want

to submit to him

 

Until then

he said, “You have to wear the pants”

because I’m a woman 

without a man
