2020 Poetry Marathon, Hour 1

Hour 1 prompt: Write a poem about a famous woman or an influential woman you know personally.


Don’t quote the song to her
she hates that

(No, not that one

Though her voice is steady
there’s no mistaking her
for anyone else)

She’ll be the first to tell you
she doesn’t get whatever she wants—
and neither do you

But if you listen
we all may get what we need
