Nothing personal

some women I know often complain

that men are incapable of seeing them in any other light except

in the fashion of ex-girlfriends, wives and whores

I add “and mothers, and daughters, and aunts”

they say that we like to label our commodities

I tell them its just a convenient system to sort them out

to figure out which one goes where

and ultimately, to put them to good use

just a good and efficient system, nothing personal

apparently, “pig” is an appropriate epithet for me

who is putting labels now?
