Obedience sold at market price*

By: Andi V.D. Berge

She’ll be

lovely and quiet

pink and delicate

like an oyster

drooling on the floor

lipstick in place.

Insert through eye

and strike the chisel

A mere tap

with the hammer

and she’ll petrify

to breath-taking stone

and you’ll restore

peace at home.

Never mind the detachment,

you like your coffee

poured from an empty pot anyway.

  • Not so fun fact: When lobotomy was a legal practice, 84% of the people that received it were women.
