Rhyme Scheme: ABC DEF GHI GJJ KLF MFF NOE

Hypocrite women how seldom we speakA
of our own doubts while dubiouslyB
we mother man in his doubtC
-
-
And if at Mill Valley perched in the treesD
the sweet rain drifting through western airE
a white sweating bull of a poet told usF
-
-
our cunts are ugly why didn't weG
admit we have thought so too AndH
what shame They are not for the eyeI
-
-
No they are dark and wrinkled and hairyG
caves of the Moon And when aJ
dark humming fills us aJ
-
-
coldness towards lifeK
we are too much women toL
own to such unwomanlinessF
-
-
Whorishly with the psychopompM
we play and plead and sayF
nothing of this later And our dreamsF
-
-
with what frivolity we have pared themN
like toenails clipped them like ends ofO
split hairE
