I’m lacking chuztpah
I’m lacking a
warrioresses heart
sometimes
we forget
we are not in a tower
wanting to be saved
the tower
is imaginary
we
are
heroines

but we get tired
sometimes
and one famine
after another
one defeat
after another
one challenge
to duel
after another
can eat the memory
and dissolve it
so that we forget
we are not Cinderella’s
we are not some
fucking
Disney
fairy tail princess

we are Zena
the warrior princess
we are Joan of Arc
we are fierce
with glowing eyes
and sword
at side
but nary have to battle
just due
to the fact
of our stature
because
those who would tread
on a princess
would never
tread
on a warrioress
