Just Another Sonnet

24 Nov

I read an article on Rolling Stone
About gang-rapes at college frats
And administrators and “friends” who preach silence.
My eyes are a keg at the end of the night.
I think back on
A party of my own
When I danced with my friends in a cage at a club.

How dare I cage my own
femininity?
How dare I mock
my sisters, screams smothered,
And willingly
showcase my submission?—but
when push comes to “love,” it was just another party.
