Chased by Two Syllables

A WAM : A woman  in a box of two syllables

She’s mare that’s too dark, too fat
their cant of this and that
chained to two syllables
Wo’man

Wo’man

She can’t, she’s chained to two syllables
Can you smell hell on this breath, mixed with heaps of onion
sand storms, heat, sweat
She’s chained to two syllables
A’rab

A’rab

They’re all fretting, anxious
galloping the course, mares alongside
stallions chased by two syllables
Mus’lim

Mus’lim

She’s a WAM, a woman, Arab and a Muslim

in a box of two syllables
