What’s In a Word?

Poet?  No, Poetess!
The term implies sex which, yes,
I have.  It’s obvious.

A voice I give to prose and verse.
Whether it’s high or low makes it no better or worse.
It’s word choice that’s the moving force.

And, so I choose a word
With a double “s” that serves
To honor my feminine curves.

So proud, on so many levels.
You go girl!

I love this poem. But I really love the idea behind it. At the extreme risk, in fact, inevitability of offending someone I say I support egalitarian philosophy, and I think that the final step of the feminist movement isn't "equality" but equally valued difference.

Thanks for being a poetess, and thanks for writing this poem.
