To be 

A man, 

As a writer is to 
Make love 
Or to fuck 
The meaning 
Blindly from 
My words.
But as a woman, ah 
As a woman 
As a writer is to 
Give birth 
To make the very shapes of my worlds 
To feel every heart within my womb 
And share a brief fragment of myself 
To everyone unworthy of 
My being.
