SHE IS A SUFFRAGETTE by Strider Marcus Jones

her hair tumbles
blowing like unfurled cotton
through unforgotten
fumbles
in vegetation
of our own
interpretation
of each other
in the dark.

my desk grown
out of a tree sown
from my lover
where i carved these words in the bark
sitting in her branches
knowing what life is
all about
as i look out
of wooded windows

and absorb it’s shows
as it goes
through each obscenity
of extreme supremacy-
a woman must not let
a man forget
she is a suffragette
in her soul and under his blanket
so never kept

or chatteled forever
to the custom weather
of his debt.

  1. After living for 6 years together, we have decided to marry. This would never have happened if either of us felt we were chattel. I am 71 and he is 72. I think your poem expresses positive sentiments about autonomy within a relationship. Congratulations on its publication. Happy Holidays, Strider!
