Background
Shameless Hussy

i am one of the true hussies;

i have no shame;

i was a housewife, and

stretched from the housiness of it (hus)

and the wifiness of (wif/hus-wif) to

a woman who cant bear wifedom (hussy) / i

grew beyond the house, like alice after eating

too many cookies. exactly what i did; i ate

too many cookies; lovers, poetry, moving my

body in a new way, an old way, the way women

like me have always moved, largely; with great

motions beyond our allotted sphere, with more

need than fear, and more grace than shame.
