SENDING FEMINIST AID TO FRANCE ~ Love, ElizaBeth Coira

Sending Feminist Aid To France_Love ElizaBeth Coira_HomeGrownSojourner.com


I like to help
Where I can
When I can
How I can

And on my flight
To Istanbul
I found Air France
In need

You see the French
They like can-can
Suffer spells
From love-sick (hu)men

And on my flight
In their magazine
I saw a chance
To help

To send some aid
Breathe some life
Support and sense
Into their guide

They think of fashion
But not of sense
Consume commodity
Sex and essence

Like a game
But We are People
I Am Woman
Not a thing

Here on earth
For you to play
Like a puppet
Pretty piece

To collect
On a shelf
In a closet
Notch on belt

And so I thought
How can I help
This sad world
Starving women

I work all day
For many years
Brand marketing
Communications

So when I saw
One…of many ads
Luckily I had
A pen nearby

It went something
Just like this
Picture I made
With PowerPoint today

Perhaps a few
More F-Bombs too
In the original
Hand-crafted version

But Feminism
Isn’t four letters
My humanity isn’t
A sin

Love
Thought
Respect
A little
Consideration

Isn’t really
Political
Or so hard
To understand

Let’s. Wake. Up.
My ladies
Snap out of it
My men

These games we’ve played
For far too long
Really have
No Win

But simply serve
To separate
Bind…
And confine us

Fool
Confuse
Redirect us
From LOVE
Shared with best friends

True LOVE
For ourselves
Beautiful connection
With a partner

“God’s” REAL LOVE
Does exist
Within You
Between
Equal
Lovers
