Not Another Russian Doll
The painted faces taunt with knowledge
that you still don’t want to know,
hideous in their stance
of identical mute
But what good are hips with handles
if you don’t love to be held?
Generations of women
Neatly inside the one uniform shape.
This is their history you wear:
the only freedom
– until you reach the size of a grenade pin.
