Everyone Wants A Strong Woman

Everyone wants a strong woman
until she actually stands up,
flexes her muscles,
projects her voice

Suddenly, she is too much.
She has forgotten her place.

You love those women
as ideas, fantasies

Not as breathing, living humans
threatening to be even better
than you could ever be.
