GIRL OF THE NORTH COUNTRY.
A strong woman is a woman in whose head
a voice is repeating, i told you so,
ugly, bad girl, bitch, nag, shrill, witch,
ballbuster, nobody will ever love you back,
why aren’t you feminine, why aren’t
you soft, why aren’t you quiet, why
aren’t you dead?
Marge Piercy, “For Strong Women” from The Moon Is Always Female
