by Kay Twohig

Battered and beaten into this womanlike shape
Born to be body and soul now machine,
Mechanisms have broken down
Reels unwound
Sparks abound
No longer knowing which button to press
No longer caring
You say reprogramming helps
One 1987 chromosome XX microchip please.


Taken from ‘Sticks and Stones’ (1989), page 28.
