Karmic Ruin

Mothers beware
Your maternal sins
Bide their time
As sons grow into men
 
The role of dutiful son;
the singular fatherly inheritance
His masculinity a life long performance
Of karmic violence
Without mirrors
There can be no reflection
No understanding
No compassion
 
Bitterness unleashed
On the old frail woman
Bewildered and hurt
Unable to challenge or run
She can only sit and absorb
The volcanic eruption
 
He cannot see
Ageing insists
The woman before him
Be understood differently
Without memories
She is not the same
Each sunrise is new
 
What happened in the past
Is the past
To understand this
Is to let go of the ruin
And forgive

Let’s Go Home

Conversations of the other shoppers
ebb away
I notice
your long sleek black hair
falling over your tanned bare shoulders,
your hands
pressed against the cold glass refrigerator door
bearing the weight of your day,
your eyes searching
for more than just your favourite wine
for release, peace.
You
catch my reflection in the glass
transfixed by your prostrated body,
you know that look
of rising desire
and heat,
you no longer want wine
but sweet release
surrender.
I walk toward you with clear intent
assured you are waiting,
wanting
“Let’s go home”

Male feminist
Tony understands women
he’s three of his own

“…During the International Women’s Day Breakfast in Canberra yesterday, Tony Abbott claimed that his wife and three daughters have helped him become a feminist…. … In reality, all he has done is show that he supports binary gender roles and reflect bias towards white middle class working women in his policies. While the Coalition paid parental leave scheme may be good for Australian women who want to take time off work to have children, it does nothing for career orientated women who may experience set backs in their jobs if they take six months of the year off. On the contrary, Abbott’s policy encourages professional women to stay at home to look after new born children while their male colleagues increase their job prospects. Not to mention the role the policy plays in reinforcing inequality between high and low socioeconomic groups of women.”  Read the whole article Lip Mag
