Two Poems
Erin Elizabeth Wehrenberg

 

from NOTES ON HEALING & CLARITY

 

Feel It and Know It

if you have to question

whether something
is or isn’t

whether you
can or can’t

whether things are
okay or not

you probably already know,
you are probably just seeking permission.


 
Hey, Do You Have Any Lipstick?

If I rejected all the stereotypical feminine things I like or want to be
(just because they are rooted in patriarchy),
I am still letting patriarchy control me.
Just in a different way.
