The Winter Solstice 2010 issue of Mused was just released today and with it is my poem Some Girl. Perhaps the closest I might get to a feminist-assertion of equality – or more so than that, meaning. I wrote this a long time ago and when I found it again, I liked the sentiment and submitted it. It’s easy to get lost in the crowd, labeled, judged. “Girl” and related adjectives could easily be subbed for “Guy” and guy-equivalent adjectives. Don’t we all want to be someone more than some thing?
