What would make a man? – Cary Briel

Posted on Jun 4, 2011 in Poetry, Writing

What would make a man
seek nylons
and high heels,
and weeping
two days long away?
Except he be young,
except he’d agreed,
when he was a he.
 
What would make a man
seek mountains,
just to fall,
just to leap,
and to be caught
by his angels,
by his kin,
when he’d become a she?
