Poems from New York #8

finding grapefruit gems in the bowels of my hard drive… 

One morning in Maine

I discovered that grapefruit

Can be eaten

With brown sugar


This was in the same

town in Maine

where I discovered that grown men

whistle at 12 year old girls


Yesterday I told myself

to claim the fact

that feminism is a key research concern

in my work.


No more hiding

from what I have known

there comes a time

when we are done.
