Distress of a Damsel

How just like a man

to believe he is the Almighty Savior

and I?

I am just a damsel in need of saving.

Darling, did you learn nothing

from Lilith? from Eve?

This phoenix does need your shelter,

or your approval for risk.

For women come with natural barbs,

natural defenses, stronger than the likes of you.
