I'm Female

I'm not tough
droll or stoical.

I droop
after wine, sex
or intense conversation.

The streets coil around me
when they are empty

I'm female
I get scared.

from: Dorothy Porter, "Chapter One - "The New Job"," The Monkey's Mask. South Melbourne: Hyland House, 1994.


I'm President

I'm not scared
of terrorists, voters.

I stick out my chest,
after bombing and sex
or intense bouts of backtracking.

The streets are empty around me
my supporters are vaccuous.

I'm President Jesus Bush,
scared and almighty.

from: President Jesus Bush, "The Lies I Love to Live", no publisher, just propaganda, throughout the world.
