    Remember that every son had a mother
    whose beloved son he was,
    and every woman had a mother
    whose beloved son she wasn’t.

    The token woman carries a bouquet of hothouse celery
    and a stenographer’s pad; she will take
    the minutes, perk the coffee, smile
    like a plastic daisy and put out
    the black cat of her sensuous anger
    to howl on the fence all night.
    —Marge Piercy (b. 1936)
