Taboo




Excited that Maggie’s work will now be available on Word Press!



Separated 
To discuss
Unmentionable business
So we are told
 
As if in hushed 
Knitting circles
How to get blood 
Out of cotton
Little pills and t-shaped things
What happens when they fail
#metoo
But what now
 
We are educated
Now
Unlike our mothers 
And grandmothers
Who were forced to rely 
On old wives’tails
 
And yet 
We cloister ourselves 
Slightly ashamed 
Mildly angry
Like penguins 
Protecting their burdens 
For a bitter world
 
Maybe because here
We are free
Maybe because 
Out there
We 
Are still 
Taboo
