Gender Critiqued

Male poems
try hard
to read into
the female poems '
waiting for
a slip of guard,
fall of prudence,
or a breech of caution.

Female poems
like Draupadi
struggle to cling on
to yards and yards
of pent up emotions.
Like Goddess with many arms
they can ward off
the evil eyes,
impudent views
and molesting notions.

The poetic conclave
is through
with its critique.
A gender duly defined,
contexts characterized
the female poems '
unpolluted, unscathed,
continue to retain
their susceptible status
and endangered distinction.
