Just a Man

Zarah K has contributed this stirring poem – She wrote: “having observed the recent trend on PTH, I thought I should make a “feminist” contribution of my own. I’m no poet so I’m afraid it is amateurish… and also a bit edgy.” Zarah your edginess is most endearing and we will share it here… (Raza Rumi)

i am a man not a mensche
don’t expect me to see beyond
your broken heart,
your broken hymen

feed me your vulnerability,
and the ravages of your vulgarity,
i am a vulture i am Vulcan,
venerate me, burn for me

godless, shameless,
you lie naked on my prayer mat
tonight, all night, i will call you my hoor
tomorrow i will call you a whore

because, can’t you see?
i have a birthright to this hypocrisy,
for your soft secrets to caress only me,
for the power to call it your depravity

remember i am a man, just a man,
don’t expect me to see beyond
your broken heart,
your broken hymen
