Past Lines


My daydreams rupture
into poems of the past,
those odes of Woolf, of Plath

who rejected fem norms
to purge callous recitations,
bare their hearts in ink.

Desperate sellers of dreams
trading lines for breath
to exist beyond loosed bindings

and all while still expected
to be functional women,
despite their lyrical penes.
