“Man Eater”

by Leila Kalliel //

I am a man eater. 

I like eating men. 

Their fear, so sweet on my tongue 

~

I am a man eater

I like eating men

I like it even more when they run

~

Their smell is so heinous

Their minds, so dull

The least they can do is entertain us

But no—

~

Self-importance runs free

In the minds of our men

With privilege and glee

Sick pigs love their pen 

~

But Farmer has come

Turns out he’s a She

Her teeth, and her venom

—they chew us all free

~

They call us Man Eaters

Some champions, some freaks

But how else to cure the misogyny men keep?

~

Because we are Feminists

We must eat all men

Their Hatred, their Rib—we leave it to Them

~

Because we are Feminists 

We must be inventive

Like cannibals in dresses:

Empowered Murderesses.
