Political Theory

Never like to hear
Women talk politics
Real turn off.
Loud mouthed and brash.
They are—
Coffee cups and brass bands
In a washing machine together.

Someone left spare coins,
The mess is more.
They know
No
Ups or downs

They know
Kitchen sinks.
So cliché,
But kitchen sinks,
I could tell you
That Drano is blue
The front page of the paper
Works best
For
Kitty litter.

Women talking politics
With
Lipstick on their teeth.

Round mouths,
Round heads,
Circular.
They are circular creatures
Made for circular things
Mothering
And dying
And sex.

Hate to hear
Women talk politics
There are other ways
They should be
Using their breath.
