School cuz you never Know if a Marriage
will Work out in the Long Run. Be Prepared
to Seek a Living for you, your Children,
and Remember that a Woman never
should Depend on a Man to Support Her.
Stayin up Nights, managing Depression,
Racism, Come-Ons in Dank Offices,
Rebukes, retaliatory Marks exchanged
for your Refusals. Yet, there you are! Walls
and Walls of Book Friends! Poets, Fine Stock
Paper, Watermarks for Two Theses.
Poetry En Xochitl and Cuicatl.
All for Naught when you're a Second Class Femme.
