Patriarchy in Love

She may hate herself more than you hate her

You can’t say anything until your phallic privilege subsides

 

You ridicule her for using words like phallus

You humiliate her for attracting you

For loving you more than herself.

 

You know exactly when it begins to go where you do not know how to swim

You know when to say that you do not know how to be loved

But you do not say

You wait and will blame her for not seeing that you were an axe waiting to be used.
