The things that woman can do
with a trumpet—
they say teach a man to fish
but I say, give a girl a trumpet!
She’ll call forth the inside animal to
roar against the trees
and slash long marks in the careful lawn.
Roar!
she trumpets, go forth and roar!
The open air hears you and
raises,
the wind will gust that roar
to the heavens and you’ve
nothing to fear—
