from Edward the Dyke

[prologue to Edward the Dyke and other poems]
by Judy Grahn

I'm not a girl
   I'm a hatchet
I'm not a hole
   I'm a whole mountain
I'm not a fool
   I'm a survivor
I'm not a pearl
   I'm the Atlantic Ocean
I'm not a good lay
   I'm a straight razor
look at me as if you had never seen a woman before
I have red, red hands and much bitterness
