Ties that bind

Cowritten by Rachel Kellum. http://www.wordweeds.com/

Who binds women
Punched with three holes
Smooths contour to fit
Only within the square
trims dinner time curves
into black skirt suits
trapped, tied, wrapped
in plastic, rayon, elastic, nylon
products assembled
in rows
sleeping in dim
light shifts
stacked in stasis
boxed in Bias
tilted in umbrage
paper mausoleums
sliding drawers of women
closer to the edge
until the cabinet falls
