Wake up, Sleeping Beauty

Sleeping Beauty woke,

There were no alarming kisses.
No fumble-fingered princeling’s
limb-blade advances. No
stubby, wickless banter.
No flameless, smoky sigh. No
choking unmet urges. Surging
Dawn, emergent,
begging one more night.

Sleeping Beauty woke.

Cool plastic, glass smooth reassurance.
Default ringtone.
It was Friday,
January Twentieth,
Two Thousand Seventeen.

Here’s what Trump has done for women in his first 100 days.

Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Cinderella, etc. They all better wake up.
