Years in other

I didn’t realize how sexist I was

Until recently

I thought I was radical. And maybe I was

After all I wore a blazer and read Virginia Wolf and smoked hand rolled cigarettes

While speaking metered stoicism

Hunched in hallways where I leaned in

Whispering self agency

While all along believing

Male meant strength.

And only some women were strong

It was nature I said

I didn’t believe
all women are strong
as Fuck
