I, woman, by Pamela Ireland Duffy

I am not a silent poet

Silence!
I’m speaking
I, woman
naked
before the mirror
of truth
no disguise
no make-up
no emperor’s wife’s
new clothes
emperor – ha!
no more emperors
no more sun kings
this is an age
of moon goddesses
and you
ridiculous little man
without me
you were never even born
silence, spermatozoid
silence
I’m singing
I, woman
naked and proud
singing the moon
in triumph
at the origin of the world.

On March 1st 2017, the Polish MEP Janusz Korwin-Mikke, said in the European Parliament that women are weaker, smaller, and less intelligent than men.
‘The Origin of the World’ by Gustave Courbet 1866, is in the Musée d’Orsay.
