INSPO (vol.5)

“He visits my town once a year.

He fills my mouth with kisses and nectar.
I spend all my money on him.
‘Who girl, your man?’
No, a mango.”


This unmarked poem stood out from all the rest.

The immediate reaction to this was a smile and the implied understanding that this conversation is between two women.

There’s this image of a strong woman, an almost femme fatale figure being portrayed here. A “I could have him, but I don’t need him” feeling.

I wish I could pick this unnamed prophet’s brain.

This reminds me of a Cher interview from GodKnowsWhen where she says:

“A man is not a necessity, a man is luxury. Like dessert, yeah.  A man is absolutely not a necessity. I adore desert. I love men. I think men are the coolest, but you don’t really need them to live. My mom said to me, ‘You know, sweetheart, you should settle down and marry a rich man,’” she continued, “I said, ‘Mom, I am a rich man.”
