To The Young Women Walking The Path Of Feminism
We begin by speaking directly
to the deaths and disappointments.
Here we begin to fill in the spaces
of silence between us. For it is between
these seemingly irreconcilable lines -
the class lines, the politically correct lines,
the daily lines we run down to each other
to keep difference and desire at a distance
- that the truth of our connection lies.
