I saw a man with no handsTo Jennifer Waller's previous piece     Our days were measured in cigarettesTo Jennifer Waller's next piece
Like statues we stand
Face to face-
Permanent smiles
That are meant to
Indicate mistrust

We are at war,
In our frozen states
Swords plastered to our sides.
Armor hard against our chests.

I fight against you with 
Emotions and words
Are your protection
But neither ever
Scores a victory

In our stagnant battle
Of womanhood.
