A Good Woman – Hilary Ellis-Manogue

A Good Woman

I like to be a little jolted
somewhere between floating empty shell
and crash down earthiness.

I see the pretty girls,
pretty in movement,
sway, cat in heat;
chosen limb flow.
Goddess martial art form.

But I want to be a little rickety.
Sometimes fall into
swishing enticement,
and grow strong, from
red hot laser stare.

But I want to be a heroine.
A goody.

Hilary Ellis-Manogue is a mother, student, writer, and owner of Venus in Retrograde vintage clothing. She has had poetry published by Rats Ass Review and Mothers Always Write magazine.
