love-defiance illogical


I humbly bow to you:

you serve, you sew,

you kiss, you cook,

you push baby buggies,

you learn, you love

you give and give and give…

from all that you have.

You lavish love on with

pudgy-cheeked little people

who dribble, who dance,

who scream, who sing,

who smile simply and sweetly,

who kiss, who kick,

who take and take and take

all that you have to give…

Punch-drunk on sweet

sensual sap, dulcet baby babble

leaves me dumbstruck.

Endless patience, primal rooted,

female-fierce, love-defiance

illogical, jeopardising maleness:

speechless – I surrender my sword…
