    "Loose Woman"

    by Sandra Cisneros

    They say I'm a beast.
    And feast on it. When all along
    I thought that's what a woman was.

    They say I'm a bitch.
    Or witch. I've claimed
    the same and never winced.

    They say I'm a macha, hell on wheels,
    viva-la-vulva, fire and brimstone,
    man-hating, devastating,
    boogey-woman lesbian.
    Not necessarily,
    but I like the compliment.

    The mob arrives with stones and sticks
    to maim and lame and do me in.
    All the same, when I open my mouth,
    they wobble like gin.

    Diamonds and pearls
    tumble from my tongue.
    Or toads and serpents.
    Depending on the mood I'm in.

    I like the itch I provoke.
    The rustle of rumor
    like crinoline.

    I am the woman of myth and bullshit.
    (True. I authored some of it.)
    I built my house of ill repute.
    Brick by brick. Labored,
    loved and masoned it.

    I live like so.
    Heart as sail, ballast, rudder, bow.
    Rowdy. Indulgent to excess.
    My sin and success--
    I think of me to gluttony.

    By all accounts I am
    a danger to society.
    I'm Pancha Villa.

    I break laws,
    upset the natural order,
    anguish the Pope and make fathers cry.
    I am beyond the jaw of law.
    I'm la desperada, most-wanted public enemy.
    My happy picture grinning from the wall.

    I strike terror among the men.
    I can't be bothered what they think.
    Que se vayan a la ching chang chong!
    For this, the cross, the Calvary.
    In other words, I'm anarchy.

    I'm an aim-well,
    shoot-sharp,
    sharp-tongued,
    sharp-thinking,
    fast-speaking,
    foot-loose,
    loose-tongued,
    let-loose,
    woman-on-the-loose
    loose woman.
    Beware, honey.

    I'm Bitch. Beast. Macha.
    Wachale!
    Ping! Ping! Ping!
    I break things.
