He Read the Inimitable Maya Angelou

He read the inimitable Maya
Angelou
and competitive gender thoughts
through his head just flew.
Her Phenomenal Woman had
him in a groove,
so he started thinking about
Phenomenal Man as if he
had something masculine
to prove,
but Phenomenal Man kept
coming out Neanderthal
Man
instead
with way too much hair
in his ears and out his
nose and running up and
down his back
and way too little
on his head,
so he gave up thinking
about men altogether
because it’s so scary
while thinking
about Phenomenal
Women
is simply
a whole lot better
and a lot less hairy.
