WOULD MAN HAVE A SAY IN THE MATTER AT ALL?
If man truly saw woman as sacred,
Would we have less sex and hate crimes against her?
If he truly saw her as a being worthy of respect,
Would she have equality in his familiar spaces of power?
If he truly saw her sexuality as one of her choice, and not his,
Would we leave that strange space we now inhabit?
In between gratuitous displays of sexuality in the media,
the mocking of Jada,
and a prudish moral policing
of the mother feeding her child in public?
But wait …
If woman truly saw herself as all these things,
Sacred, Powerful, Worthy,
In control of her Sexuality.
Would man have a say in the matter at all?
