NaPoWriMo 2020 Day 8: Papa Patriarchy

Putting a door on a woman’s mouth

My foot was already in my mouth

Its usual place

You can’t slam the door now

Papa Patriarchy.


This prompt was fun- taking the first line from another poet. I took mine from the Anne Carson Twitter bot- “Putting a door on the female mouth has been an important project of patriarchal culture from antiquity to the present day. ” Here’s another poem.
