You know the kind of woman –
Women who swim in the ocean alone,
Fitting & turning & wiley women,
clockwork women keeping the parts spinning.
women who keep the night lights on,
Bee keeping, tree digging,
no flies on her women!
Blunt & sharp / soft & lean
firm & sweet.
Steady handed women,
bloody sweary women.
Rhyming women, fighting women,
deft fingers weaving some alchemy women;
Industrious women, burrowing women,
Dirt on her cheek.
Fancy women, dancing women,
women who make –
she made a ring, a vessel, a garden –
she made a man, girls; strong hearts.
Fast women, very fast,
not smiling just for anyone women,
She’ll make you laugh
My kind of women.
