she seemed quite sweet

until I got her

between the sheets

& then

she disappeared from view

one of those pretty girls

masquerading as women

wanting liberation yet

never having worked out

her own sexuality or needs

& I didn’t want to take

anything not freely given

as the feminists had told her

all penetration was rape

& along the way

something sad had happened

to make that seem true

though she seemed happy

to comply with whatever it is

that men want in that sweet arena

& worse

she was quite upset

when I told her

I did not want her now

to maybe come back

when she had some ideas

some clarity

on what she wanted

if a woman

has a right to self determination

I guess I do too
